Folks that know Ana-n-I know we gravitate to where the LIVE music is happening. And this year’s Holidazzle did not disappoint. Frankly there was more going on then we had time to enjoy and missed some great stuff. There was so much to take in. I love that we can enjoy this level of live entertainment right next door to the historic neighborhood. The shopping, the other special events, the running into friends as we walked from venue to venue was all great fun. I heard it was successful from the downtown merchant’s perspective as well. That too was good to hear.
Among other things we caught Lance Brown’s Group at Cafe’ Belwah. OMG… wow, they were great! We took note of when they’re going to be there again and will be sure to be there. I’ll update it onto our calendar shortly.
We’ve seen them before, always enjoy them and try to catch them whenever we can. I was pained however to hear we’d missed the Gospel Bells from the Lighthouse Fellowship Church. They were performing just a block over at the Pleasant Street Coffeehouse. Matt Goodwin was sitting in with them as well. Ugh… I heard it was amazing. I’d have really liked to have experienced that. Oh well… next year.
I think our neighborhood in particular benefits from and has a vested interest in having a strong down town. Lets support our downtown merchants this holiday season and mark our calendars for the upcoming Holidazzle event on Friday the 12th from 5:00-9:00 pm. It’s a great time.
A dazzling evening of celebration featuring artists, and specialty craftspeople in forty-plus locations as they display one-of-a-kind gifts and unique pieces of art. Live music, Santa visits, children’s events and holiday treats make this a truly special evening for the entire family.
