THE LAS OLAS COMPANY AND RADIO CITY ROCKETTES KICK-OFF “ROCK‘N” HOLIDAY SEASON DURING CHRISTMAS ON LAS OLAS

The Las Olas Company and The Las Olas Association Welcomed Larger-Than-Ever Crowd of Area Residents at 42nd Annual Christmas on Las Olas


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – (December 5, 2007) –On Tuesday, November 27th, The Las Olas Company and the Las Olas Association joined together to host the 42nd Annual Christmas on Las Olas festival, the largest event of the year on Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale’s premier shopping, dining and tourism street. 

 

While thousands of adults and children flocked to the Boulevard to catch a glimpse of the Radio City Rockettes, take a ride down Starbucks’ Snow Mountain and enjoy the festive sounds of a variety of carolers, amazing store fronts which included live window models.  The Riverside Hotel drew a huge crowd with its spectacular “Ice Bar,” which is a fully functioning bar carved out of solid piece of ice, along with beautiful ice bowls that graced the top of the bar.

 

“Christmas on Las Olas truly transforms Las Olas Boulevard into a winter wonderland,” said Irving H. Bowen, Chairman and President of The Las Olas Company. “The success of this annual event is due to all the hard work put into it by the tenants of the boulevard as well as many outside vendors.  The entertainment is always fantastic as well as the great people of the entire Florida area that turn out to enjoy all the festivities.” 

 

Inside the Riverside Hotel, more than 200 guests attended an exclusive VIP party hosted by the Riverside Hotel and Korbel California Champagne.  The party was located at the exclusive Preston’s Lounge and the court yard.  The reception was complete with a special appearance by the world famous Radio City Rockettes, who posed for photographs with a variety of guests.
