The holiday season is in full bloom! If you missed this year’s “Christmas on Las Olas” holiday event in Fort Lauderdale, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year. The event kicked off just as the sun went down. The boulevard trees are now wrapped in tiny white lights and there are interesting holiday light displays not only on the Las Olas Boulevard medians but also atop many of the local businesses. “Snow Mountain” was a big hit with kids and, of course, Santa was available for pictures! Everywhere you looked there was something going on. The festivities included Christmas carolers, dancers, performers dressed in Dickens-style costumes, as well as music ensembles, bell ringers, karaoke and live jazz. There was even a holiday movie being shown on a big screen with an open seating area. All this and admission was free!
The Las Olas Boulevard shops showed their holiday spirit with displays of all kinds, including live mannequins! Even the Riverside Hotel and restaurants along the route gleamed with lots of holiday lights, wreaths and other holiday decorations. The historic Stranahan House was also decorated for the season and open to the public at a discounted rate. See a 60-second show of some of the highlights of the 2007 Chrismas on Las Olas event! The Christmas ornaments pictured here are from one of my favorite Las Olas Blvd. shops – the Seldom Seen Gallery.
