Ridge Manor, FL December 8th. It was lots of fun and excitement for all the ‘little people’ (aka children) and their families of Ridge Manor and surrounding cities as they participated in the Hernando County Chamber of Commerce 4th annual Light Up Ridge Manor. Under the brisk, cool, star-lit night children enjoyed train rides throughout the outdoor event. Eyes were aglow as stories were told of how “Giggle Saves Christmas.” Santa arrived in time to have his picture taken with all the little boys and girls. And of course, don’t forget Smokey the Bear, Road to Bethlehem, cake walk and more! Sounds of joy rang as Xmas carolers sang throughout the night. DJ Mike Gorham and Dixie Blue provided the rest of the music as families came together on this beautiful, starry night.
Proceeds from the raffle, for-profit vendors and pictures benefit Brooksville Senior FFA.
