Holiday Wonder Walk at Coliseum Central

Visual delight in December

wonder walk no date - enews sizeEach December, Hampton’s Water Walk Trail is illuminated for the holidays with a variety of walk-through, family-friendly holiday features with animated displays; large-scale, scenic props; video enhancements; lighted bridges and paths; kid’s activities; food; strolling entertainment; and other surprises along the way. Join in the fun — it’s all free!

To enter, park in the main Coliseum parking lot, go to front doors of the Coliseum, then look to your right about 25-30 feet away and you’ll see lighted tents and a path entrance. From there, the path takes you behind the Coliseum, along the water’s edge, and continues to Freeman Drive, crossing over bridges and winding through the woods, all lit for the holidays. There is no admission fee, all activities are free, and parking is free.  

As part of the lighted path, a limited number of Community Trees will also be available for Hampton clubs, businesses, churches, and organizations to decorate.

If you’d like to participate as a vendor or to decorate a Community Tree, look for the link to register closer to December, or email for more information.
