Another Great Year~ Light Up Ocala

Seemed like all of Ocala was out today. “Light Up Ocala” was absolutely awesome! It was bigger and better than ever before. However, it was pretty windy and chilly… Floridians just do not like the cold! Yes, I know, we are pretty spoiled!

I heard that John Travolta was part of the crowd…. of course I did not get to see him… oh well, maybe next time.

The extended blocks this year seemed to give the crowd much more breathing room. Check out the pictures below, and next year be sure come and be a part of the fun.

“Light Up Ocala”

The crowds were tremendous tonight on the Downtown Square as people waited for 7:30 to arrive, and the countdown to “Light Up Ocala”. Bands played and vendors lined the streets. A good time was had by all who came out for this event.

Excitement filled the air in anticipation for “Light Up Ocala”. If you’ve never been, it’s a must next year!
