House Talk with Silvia Dukes


Christmas on Main Street 2017 in Brooksville Florida

A great time was had by all who attended the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremonies in Brooksville Florida last night.

It was an enthusiastic crowd that cheered all the way through the countdown and the lighting of the tree that sits in front of the historic Hernando County Courthouse. 



The lighting ceremony was followed by an entertainment program with singers and performers of various community organizations. Of course, Santa and Mrs. Clause also made their appearance to the delight of children big and small!

People gathered on Main Street for an old fashioned community holiday street party complete with numerous street vendors.  Restaurants and shops around Main Street were open showing off their decorations for the holidays.
