Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Ceremony
Beverly Hills kicked off the Holiday Season Sunday as only Beverly Hills can, with Santa Claus rappelling down the Luxe Hotel, “snow” confetti falling, music and the beautiful glow of 150,000 lights in Baccarat Crystal chandeliers lining Rodeo Drive. “Residents and visitors of all ages were wowed at the sights and sounds of the gorgeous Baccarat chandeliers. The fabulous lighting ceremony was the perfect way to kick off a very happy holiday season in true Beverly Hills style,” said Mayor Lili Bosse.
