Get Your Holiday Cheer on in Laurelwood Park

We dig the bar events. We dig the ugly sweaters. We even dig the mustache contest at Devil’s Point.

But there’s something to be said about a neighborhood event that brings any and all together. Even if you’re more into Menorahs, Yule, seasonal shifts, or just bah-humbugging it, surely you can get down to some holiday revelry in Laurelwood Park (because this park is way more than just the convergence of Foster and Holgate, right? And Santacon made it their playground last year, too). And surely you can use an excuse to walk to Barrio (at the Mercado) for a drink afterwards—because that’s where the tree’s going after its lighting in Laurelwood Park. Oh, and the tree will be named Twiggy. So there’s that.

Ya dig?

Ok, here’s the press release from the Foster Area Business Association…

    We should get FABA and the neighborhood association to light one of (or all of?) the big trees in Laurelwood Park every year. It would be a true non-denominational Holiday Tree (/Forest) since it wouldn’t be in the shape of a Christmas Tree, and it would spread some neighborhood cheer to everyone that passes during the season. I could see how one small tree in the park might be an issue for vandalism or theft, but imagine lights up in all of those big trees. I think it would be pretty darn magical.

      I agree about lighting a tree that is already in the park. Perhaps we could even plant one for the yearly purpose. That might be a feat! I’m happy for this first step.
