Southside Village in Sarasota was bustling with activity last night from 6:00 pm til 9:00 pm as the Holiday lights were turned on at 7:00 pm to kick off the season. To everyone's delight, Santa arrived in a golf cart. There was music and dancing on the street. Local artists displayed their work as well as face painters, raffles and prices.
Restaurants were busy as shoppers stopped from something warm to sip. The holiday spirit was definitely in the air. We heard that Gecko's parking lot was turned into a winter wonderland with SNOW although we didn't get over that part of Hillview Street. We dined at Knick's Tavern on Osprey.
Homes in this West of the Trail Sarasota area were twinkling too. Congrats to all the local businesses and artists for a very successful Holiday Walk.
