Mayoral Proclamation in St. Petersburg

Recognizing the Impact of Enchant in the Tampa Bay Area

During the 2023 holiday season, two of our longstanding Enchant locations continued the tradition of the city mayors welcoming guests to the start of our season. Both Enchant St. Petersburg and Enchant Washington D.C. marked their fourth year of upholding this tradition, with their respective mayors eagerly joining in the fun.

In St. Petersburg, Mayor Ken Welch, who is in his second year in office, delivered an inspiring proclamation that set the stage for the jubilant celebrations to follow. Choirs harmonized joyously as guests eagerly lined up at the entrance of the dazzling light maze, adding to the excitement of the occasion.

Here are a few moments captured during the proclamation:

Overall, these memorable moments epitomize the spirit of the holiday season and reinforce the significance of community engagement and celebration in our beloved cities.

We hope to keep this tradition alive for years to come!
