WHAT: Village of Merrick Park kicks off the joyous season with its most beloved of free events, its annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony. For the second time, VMP is environmentally friendly by lighting its 50-foot tree with 55,000 LED light bulbs. The Master of Ceremonies for this magical night will be Lisa Petrillo, Entertainment Correspondent of CBS-4 News. Festivities will include a musical performance by the Coral Gables High School Choir and a holiday greeting from Santa Claus, Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer and other character favorites. Throughout The Garden live entertainment including stilt walkers and jugglers will take place. Other children’s activities include a sugar cookie decoration station and refreshments provided by Whole Foods Market Coral Gables. Gather your family around the breath-taking tree for your first memorable photograph of the season.
