The official start to downtown's Christmas season gets bigger each year. They estimated 15,000 people were there. 5th and Vine were closed to traffic to accommodate everyone.
Amazing to think less than a month ago downtown was fodder for politicians and city haters.
"you'll get shot"
"no one goes there"
But what is everyone's first thought when they want an authentic experience? Lets grab the kids and head downtown!
Yep, crazy but true.
Its not Rockefeller Square yet but Fountain Square keeps building on one success after another.
15,000 people? if there were 5,000 there for the Obama rally a few years ago there were easily 3 times that many people in and around the Square Friday.
Zipline Santa! I guess some older curmudgeons weren't amused but everyone around us though it rather amusing.
