If you’re a fan of holiday music and caroling, make sure to make a pit stop at Tinsel Towne Square, the entertainment heart of Winter on Broad Street. Here you’ll be able to enjoy tons of holiday-themed music and dance performances from local groups.
And for those with furry friends, Winter on Broad Street will be holding a “Bark in the Dark” special on Monday nights from 5 to 7 p.m. so you can wander into their winter wonderland along with your pup!
Of course, organizers have implemented series of safety measures to ensure everything runs smoothly at this socially-distant winter wonderland and guests will be required to wear masks at all times, except while seated in designated food and beverage areas.
