'Tis the season for Rodeo Drive to celebrate, indeed. Joining LA's itinerary of holiday happenings is the renovation-happy luxury stretch's annual holiday lighting ceremony, which will feature a performance by former '80s teen queen-turned-jazz singer Molly Ringwald.
Kicking off next Sunday, November 22nd at 6pm, the fancy (and free!) festivities will also include a sneak preview dance performance of "The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker", a ritzy laser- and animation-filled light show to the beat of celeb DJ Michelle Pesce, and of course, a palm tree lighting ceremony that'll culminate in a rarity for LA: real snowfall. It's all happening at the 200 block of Rodeo Drive, which will be decked out in swanky gift-themed decor, like giant light-up boxes and tens of thousands of red lights.
