A Winter Wonderland in Brookland

On Friday, December 2nd, Monroe Street Market hosted its inaugural Tree Lighting Event, bringing a flurry of activities to Brookland.  Neighbors and community members gathered for festive performances from Only Make Believe, Take Note Acapella, and Word of Mouth.  They also savored food and drink offerings from Brookland Pint, Busboys & Poets, Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, &Pizza, and Annie’s Ace Hardware.  Kids had a blast with holiday crafts from Art Jamz, festive face painting, and fun giveaways.  Santa even took time from his busy schedule to take photos with kids and pets!

The evening concluded with Santa leading the countdown to light the tree.  From now through the end of the year, check out Monroe Street Market’s first holiday tree on the Cornerstone Plaza.
