Save the date... this year's Christmas kick-off takes place Thursday, November 20 from 5pm onwards.
This annual evening event will see bright holiday lights and Christmas decor lighting up the street, and the unveiling of beautiful Christmas window displays at dozens of shops and restaurants throughout the neighbourhood. Festive carollers will be making the rounds, free gingerbread cookies and warming stations found along 9th Ave, and gift wrap by donation at Silver Threads (1311 9 Ave. SE).
Following the Nov. 20 evening event, Christmas in Inglewod will continue through December 24 with special events, free parking and more taking place on the first 3 Saturdays in December. We hope you'll join us for our most #Inspired Christmas season yet #InInglewood!
The spectacular two-story, fire-breathing mechanical octopus from Californian artist Duane Flatmo and special effects mastermind Jerry Kunkel is making its Canadian debut as part of Beakerhead 2014 and Find It's final 2014 Inglewood Night Market on Friday, Sept. 12!
Constructed primarily out of recycled junk from the local scrap yard, El Pulpo is a spectacular interactive sculpture that, as with all things Beakerhead, ingeniously combines art and technology.
