Making the Old the new. The Kiwanis Club of Englewood – Cape Haze and The Englewood Event Center bring you the all new Old Englewood tradition of Christmas Card Lane

Join in the holiday event by registering you company or organization using the link above.  This is a holiday fest for all ages to come out and enjoy the traditional sprits of Christmas

In the 1970’s Christmas Card Lane was held on a vacant lot owned by the Bass family. Originally the Lane was organized by the Young Women’s Group, then in later years it was adopted by the Jaycees.

Local artists and students of the Lemon Bay High School art program would help create the cards for local businesses. Families would load up in their cars to drive through the winding Lane admiring the display with an excited anticipation of the upcoming holiday season.

In the early 90’s the lot was sold for development, and the Lane lost its home. Although the Lane lost its physical home it has never lost its place in the hearts of local residents.

The 2018 Christmas Card Lane drive thru display will be located at the Englewood Event Center 3069 South McCall Rd in the field next to the building fronting Winchester Blvd. This years 2018 Christmas Card Lane has a new addition of added activities for your enjoyment and entertainment.

There are those that continue to use their beloved cards from Christmases past as part of their personal holiday displays. Those cards are welcome to be on display in the historic part of this years Christmas Card Lane.

Who remembers the Big Fishing Santa? That’s right he will be our Grand host! He has returned to us to bring our community great cheer and holiday blessings!

Beginning Saturday December 1st, 2018 Christmas Card Lane will officially open at dusk.
