HOLIDAYS

The Lakeshore Avenue BID has a long tradition of celebrating holidays in a big way – particularly Halloween, Christmas, and Easter.

Halloween Parade & Costume Contest

Come celebrate Halloween on Lakeshore Avenue with our annual parade!  You’ll see hobgoblins, fairy princesses, and zombies, and that’s just counting the merchants poised in their doorways with trick-or-treat goodies.  This event begins and ends in the courtyard flanking the Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church. There will be refreshments (including corn dogs fresh out of the fryer), face-painting, and lots of other fun activities.
