Free living healthy workshops
Celebration Foundation Thriving In Place has partnered with the Senior Resource Alliance (SRA)-Area Agency on Aging of Central Florida to offer the Living Healthy Workshop FREE of charge to the community. Participants of the workshops meet once a week for six weeks for two-and-a-half hours each week.
The six-week Living Healthy Workshop is for people who are living with a chronic or ongoing health condition and their caregivers who want to learn how to self-manage and take control in dealing with pain and fatigue, discover better nutrition, exercise choices and learn better ways to talk with their doctor and family about their health.
The Living Healthy Workshop starts Thursday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Celebration CDD District Office, 313 Campus St., Celebration.

18th annual Holiday Home Tour
One of Central Florida’s most loved home tours returns Dec. 3 and 4 with 10 decorated homes in Celebration. For 18 years, this Holiday Home Tour has attracted thousands of visitors to the community.
The dates and times are Saturday, Dec. 3 from 3 to 9 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 4 from 1 to 5 p.m.
“It is joyful to see so many people enjoy our town and the creative spirit of our residents.” said Debi Jackson, tour chair. “Our residents are so gracious to open their homes as a benefit to our community. This year the tour is being presented by the Celebration Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides programs that impact the lives of many neighbors in Celebration and Greater Osceola County.”
The homes showcase Celebration’s roots as a Disney designed New Urbanist community featuring unique architectural detail, custom interior design and creative holiday décor in estate homes, lovely cottages and enchanting condos. The self-guided tour begins in downtown Celebration and winds its way through many of its neighborhoods.
New this year, the tour will include a hospitality stop at Celebration’s Town Hall located at 851 Celebration Ave. But this is not just a place of hospitality, the tour will include admission to a Winter Wonderland of delightfully decorated Holiday trees and exquisite “tablescapes,” which will be available for sale. Also available for purchase will be a specially designed 2016 Winter Wonderland ornament as a memento of the event.
