Holiday lights to shine brightly in West Kendall

Commissioner Juan Zapata greets Christmas carolers.

More than 400 residents joined Miami- Dade Commissioner Juan C. Zapata, State Reps. Jeanette Nuñez and Carlos Trujillo, and Miami-Dade School Board member Carlos Curbelo to begin the holiday season at the first annual West End Holiday Magic event and Christmas tree-lighting ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 22, at the Kendale Lakes Library.

Officials lit the grand tree and switched on the gateway lights at neighboring Olympic Park. Event goers enjoyed food trucks, a rock climbing wall, bounce houses, story time and the Roxy Theater Group carolers who brought good cheer with holiday songs.

The West End Holiday Magic will continue through Jan. 9, 2014 with events on the weekends including free rides for children, special appearances by Santa Claus, a food truck, snow days, and many other family- friendly activities. Kendale Lakes Library is located at 15205 SW 88 St.

“We want residents of West Kendall to be able to enjoy some great holiday entertainment and activities right in their own backyards,” Commissioner Zapata said. “We encourage the community to come out and take advantage of all the fun.”

The first annual West End Holiday Magic event is made possible through the sponsorships of Lennar, Miami-Dade County Parks & Recreation, and the Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade, among others.
