Dreaming of a Rockefeller Christmas, but don't have the luxury of making it to New York City? Sarasota residents are in luck as Benderson Development just annouced their brand new "Holidays on the Green Celebration." 

University Town Center and the surrounding shopping centers are known for going all out for the holidays. Christmas lights galore, holiday displays, activities, and the best Santa experience are what UTC is known for. 

Now residents have the chance to skate on real ice on an outdoor skating rink now through January. The cost is affordable only $10 and includes skate rentals with 90 minutes of skating. There is also a stage that will include holiday perfomances and showings of holiday movies with refreshments available. 

Benderson is hoping these efforts will attract more community involvement this holiday season. He has even enlisted help from local schools to help with decorating, with a reward for the top three schools with the best holiday decorations. Benderson quotes "This is something no Southwest Florida shopping center has done before. It's community driven, it's experience focuses and part of a nationally growing trend."
