13th Annual Emerald Coast Christmas Miracle Needy Children's Fiesta, Emerald Coast Convention Center
1pm - 2pm Open to families with children with disabilities
2pm - 7pm General Public Welcomed
Emerald Coast Convention Center
Ft. Walton Beach, Florida
The Emerald Coast Christmas Miracle Children's Fiesta is an "everything is free" Latin-flavored party focused on giving our area’s needy children and families an opportunity to have a great time. Thanks to Toys for Tots, local businesses and individual donors, we will donate brand new toys for the over 2,000 children we expect. In addition, we will also have coat donations thanks to the United Way’s “Coats for Kids” program and lots of great prizes, food and performances by local area entertainers (singers, clowns, magicians, choirs, and more).
We are looking for monetary and/or in-kind donations. New toys, gifts or clothing also welcomed. Each year, we are also contacted by many families who unfortunately cannot attend the Fiesta. For those families, our volunteers conduct our now annual “Santa’s 4-County Sleigh Ride.” The Ride entails us traveling across the four surrounding counties the day before Christmas to deliver toys directly to those families!
