Brookland In Photos: Fun Times At The 22nd Annual Celebration Of Lights

We thought readers would like to see photos from this year’s Brookland “Celebration of Lights”, which took place last night, on Sunday, December 11th. The highlight of the annual event is the trolley tours, driving past Brookland’s best and most elaborate light and decoration displays. This year the trolley tours departed again from the Mekiti Group Plaza, where neighbors mixed and mingled, enjoyed holiday treats and a fire pit, and kids watched holiday movies. We took the photos below – enjoy! (You need flash to see the photos, if you can’t see them, click here.)
