Though the music and festivities from the original event, which took place November 17, no longer fill the streets, the bright lights and familiar sounds will fill downtown through this holiday season.

Check out our photos of downtown below! Have you put up decorations to celebrate the holiday season? We want to see them and share them with the community! Please share your holiday photos (i.e., decorations, parties, Santas, etc.) at www.ocala-news.com/contact-us
