St. Petersburg, Fl – Here are some choice events for the week of December 18th.

You can celebrate the holidays in downtown Brooksville. Each weeknight along Main and Broad Streets brings lights, a music performance from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and snow. Many of the businesses are open late for your shopping pleasure.

You can view some two million Holiday Lights set up in Largo Central Park. It’s a dazzling display and you can even get a bird’s eye view from a seven-story Ferris Wheel. The lights are on display through New Year’s Day.

And catch the Nutcracker Ballet this week at the Straz Center in Tampa. The Next Generation Ballet is joined by internationally-renowned principal dancers from Miami City Ballet and New York City Ballet. Performances are December 21 – 23.
