The Plaza del Lago at Heron Bay will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland with beautiful trees, garlands, and creative ideas for the holidays. This annual spectacular event sponsored by Friends of Music benefits local public middle and high school music groups in Coral Springs and Parkland.
“Kick off the holiday season with your friends and neighbors at the all new Taste of the Holidays,” said Linda Hanson, President and Chair of the event. “Discover unique gift ideas and savor the ambience of the tastes from local restaurants, sights of gorgeous decor and sounds of holiday music from local school groups.”
The Taste of the Holidays event, sponsored by Friends of Music, will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2015. The activities begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $50.
In addition to the fabulous decorated trees by Friends of Music talented members, the Women’s Club of Coral Springs, Newcomers Club and the Coral Springs High School Art Honors Club decorate tabletop trees for sale. The proceeds go to those organizations. The silent auction will also give residents the chance to find some special items for their loved ones said Hanson.
