Experience: SouthPark Tree Lighting
If you haven't noticed it's beginning to look alot like Christmas--from the decor in stores to the holiday commercials on television. These activities may get you in the holiday spirit but what gets me going are two signature holiday events...the Fourth Ward Holiday Home Tour (future post?) and the SouthPark Tree Lighting! The tree lighting marks the season and the bright lights usher us into making Christmas lists and pondering who was naughty or nice. The lighting will take place this Friday at Symphony Park in South Park (corner of Barclay Downs Rd. and Morrison Blvd.) from 5-9pm.
In addition to the main event--the tree lighting (which Santa will be making a special appearance to help out with) there will be festivities for the entire family. Some activities include a trackless train, special musical guests, carriage rides and holiday carolers. The event will also feature Arthur Christmas, a family friendly movie.
The event is free and you are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs...as well as head to the mall and begin (or continue) your holiday shopping!
