What began as a way to spread joy to Kenmore residents during the COVID-19 pandemic has quickly become a holiday tradition.
On Friday, December 2 from 6 to 9 p.m., Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance and the Kenmore Boulevard business will host the third-annual Light the BLVD event, featuring dozens of freshly decorated storefronts, live music, a fully lit median and holiday activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Kenmore’s newest live music venue, Buzzbin Art Music & Shop, will host a holiday singalong with Rubber City Ukes and “the world’s greatest Christmas band” Missile Toe. In addition, the Rialto Theatre will host night one of its second-annual Kenmore Winter Break Music Festival. Other musicians will perform in select shops, and Santa Claus will be on hand for pictures and to spread some holiday cheer to families.
“This is a great opportunity for the community to come together, get in the spirit and support our local businesses,” said Tina Boyes, executive director of Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance.
Throughout the season, you’ll be able to vote for your favorite decorated storefront on Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance’s Facebook page @kenmoreohio. The decorator of the most loved window will be awarded a $100 gift certificate to their favorite Kenmore Boulevard business.
Light the BLVD artists, specials and locations will be added as they are confirmed at betterkenmore.org/events.
