Lake Worth festivities have begun

Lake Worth Holiday are now in full swing.   Downtown is lit up, someone generously lent the FAO Schwartz Bear.   Wait till the kids coming to the free bike giveaway and parade get to see it Saturday.  WOW.   Yesterday Saturday was the first of many holiday events.  Mango Groves Neighborhood Assoc. held their 2nd annual Art @ The Eco event.  If you didn’t attend you certainly missed out.  Last year they had twelve local participating artists, and this year the number was up to 16.  Added was a true English Christmas Cake “guess the weight“, beside the many many raffle donations from our generous merchants.  All the commissioners were in attendance, as well as our City Manager.  Andy Amoroso whose district Mango Groves is in had the honor of pulling raffle tickets as did our Mayor Pam Triollo.  The entertainment first class. “Perfect Pitch” from Sacred Heart,  was  accompanied by their band.  The Gringe who stole christmas, was again delightful.  But you want to see the photos.  “Happy Holidays to all my readersDSC06025 (1)
