ST. PETERSBURG, FL (Aug. 03, 2021) – Tampa Bay residents will be captivated once again this holiday season as Enchant, the whimsical and heartfelt Christmas light maze and village, announced their return to the city from November 26-January 2. Known for transporting guests to a world of festive wonder, Enchant is proud to present The Mischievous Elf, the second in a series of five fascinating adventures.

“I can’t tell you how much it means to us to be returning to Tampa Bay this year," said Kevin Johnston, Founder and CEO of Enchant. "Providing magical Christmas experiences is at the heart of what we do, and I know I am definitely ready to go back out and celebrate the festivities with my family, and I can imagine many of our guests feel exactly the same way.
