Celebration of Lights - 2016

lights1325Cooler temperatures -- for Florida, anyway -- were a further reminder of the Christmas season in Ave Maria Friday during the annual Celebration of Lights in the town center.

The event, which is the town's oldest and largest, drew another large crowd from throughout Southwest Florida, enjoying the parade, food, a visit rom Santa and popular activities such as skating on an artificial ice rink and a zipline. (Right, Rory Campbell, 7, on the rink; below, the Donahue Academy football team in the parade and dancers from the Ave Maria Dance Academy entertaining.)
