Vista Lights is Tonight!

WHAT: The Vista's signature open house kicks off the holiday season with a night of culture, cuisine and artistic performances. More than 60 galleries, shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues will open their doors for the evening to showcase holiday treasures, and this year expect a little more excitement from the annual tree lighting ceremony with Mayor Steve Benjamin.

WHEN: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday, November 18.

WHERE: The Congaree Vista, with pedestrian-only traffic on Gervais Street stretching from Assembly to Gadsden; and Lincoln and Park Streets between Senate and Lady.

TREE LIGHTING: The evening's highlight is a tree-lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. at the intersection of Gervais and Lincoln streets, featuring Mayor Steve Benjamin and other local dignitaries.

MORE: Attendees can get into the spirit of the season with horse-drawn carriage rides. Many businesses offer complimentary refreshments, which guests can enjoy while visiting them.

BRING YOUR SOCKS: Fabric artist Susan Lenz will be collecting socks for her artwork called "Find a Mate," a community art project to educate the public about art quilts. You'll be able to try your hand at creating, and if you bring a sock---children or adult; serious or comic---you may discover it in the final quilt, which will be unveiled at Artista Vista in April 2011.

THIS SEASON: Vista Studios/Gallery 80808 will host a special anniversary show to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Attendees will enjoy carols by several local groups, and the entire Vista will be decorated in lights.
