If you live on the West Side of the city, then you woke up this morning to a dusting of snow. That means that there are more pressing issues to worry about. Such as decorating for the holidays.
That’s right! It’s time to prepare for the Neighborhood Festival of Lights. The self-guided light festival kicks off on Thanksgiving and ends on January 6, 2015. Each year, more and more homes on the city’s West Side decorate for the holidays, adding all sorts of decorations, lights, and even some crazy inflatables (love ’em or hate ’em). It’s a family-friendly adventure that includes caroling (caroling groups wanted), hot cocoa and visits from some of the holiday’s favorite characters. It’s kinda like the Garden Walk for the winter season.
This season, the Olmsted Parks Conservancy will be decorating Symphony Circle, to add some serious pizzazz.
Remember, there is strength in numbers. So decorate those houses, and let’s make this holiday the best light festival to date. You can keep up with all of the updates by visiting this Facebook page.
