Inside Chick-fil-A

The family tradition has made the restaurant one of the most festive places in Florida!

Every holiday season, one local restaurant in Tampa Bay becomes much more than a dinner destination. In fact, it becomes a full-fledged winter wonderland, proving that temperature is no match for a dedicated Chick-fil-A Operator’s holiday spirit and a couple billion artificial snow flakes. For visitors to the area who are just passing through, the restaurant’s display is a roadside marvel. For those who call Tampa home, visiting the wonderland that is Chick-fil-A Waters Avenue is a family tradition.

Local franchise Operator Jason Dittman has turned his Chick-fil-A restaurant into a holiday spectacle for 20 years, each year bringing more bulbs, bigger crowds and brighter smiles.

Though it started with a few strands of lights, the holiday display has grown to include far more activities for families and friends to enjoy. Meet and greets with Santa Claus, musical light shows, performances from local elementary school choirs and an unexpected snowfall are just a few of the things visitors get to experience every year.
