For many of our customers, the holidays just wouldn't be the same without a trip to Freeport. Begin a new family tradition or continue an old one – see the beautiful lights set to music, get some holiday shopping done and take in a bit of Christmas cheer. We'll have festive events and family fun throughout the holidays.
