The streets between SE Sixth and SE 11th streets were packed with people wearing Santa hats, kids wearing reindeer antlers, and dogs wearing ski sweaters, as local merchants handed out samples and sold holiday goodies.
The first Christmas Cookie Battle was a success, as people flocked to donate money for the American Lung Association in exchange for cookies baked by local bakers Tea for Two Cookie Co., Cindy Made Them, and East End Eats.
Entertainment came in the form of local school choirs, a ski slope, and an ice skating rink, though people-watching ranked first for us.
Farther west on Las Olas, YOLO hosted a family fun zone, complete with carnival rides, face-painting, cookie decorating, and a tree lighting ceremony.
|Le Cirque performers were on hand to celebrate.|
