The Main Street Merchants and The Graham Companies are inviting the South Florida community to join them for the 34th Annual Main Street Festival of Lights from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, November 24.

The holiday festivity will take place along two blocks in Miami Lakes Town Center and will celebrate the beginning of the 2018 holiday season by creating memories for families, friends and loved ones as Main Street lights up with a series of holiday-themed performances.

Residents and guests can experience the Lighting of Main Street, a live DJ, photo stations, performances by students from local schools, characters, and lots of complimentary surprises for children, courtesy of presenting sponsors The Graham Companies and Main Street Merchants, along with supporting sponsor Publix Super Markets.

Renown journalist and radio personality GiGi Diaz will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. Media partners include The Miami Herald,  Y100 Miami’s #1 Hit Music Station, and 93.9 MIA, Variety of the 80s, 90s, and Today.

Shoppers who arrive early before the Festival of Lights begins will have an opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping as the Main Street Merchants will offer amazing sales in honor of Small Business Saturday, a day to celebrate and support small businesses in the community.

Santa will be stopping by to help light up Main Street at 6:30 p.m. on the Main Stage, and will then welcome young visitors to the Santa House where photos will be available and proceeds from photo sales will help fund Miami Lakes Boy Scout Troop 247.

Miami-Dade County Animal Services will be on hand to host pet adoptions.

“We are thrilled to be able to carry on this fun-filled, family tradition on Main Street,” said Andrea Graham Rechichi, vice president of Corporate and Customer Relations at The Graham Companies.

“Along with the Main Street Merchants, we love that the Festival of Lights brings together so many generations to enjoy such a heartwarming celebration,” she added.
