Believe it or not, the holidays are here again — and the city of Beverly Hills are heralding the joyous season with its second annual BOLD Holidays on Rodeo Drive. Kicking off this Thursday, November 15 with a spectacular holiday lighting celebration, the sparkling cheer continues for six weeks of art installations, live entertainment, and plenty of shopping to check everyone off your "nice" list.
Hosted by television and social media personality Dawn McCoy, this Thursday's kick-off bash is sure to dazzle with an incredible live performance from electro hip-hop violinist and America's Got Talent contestant Svet alongside a specially curated 20-piece #BOLDBH band that'll be playing your favorite holiday hits. Plus, guests will enjoy a dramatic unveiling of the festive lighting and decor, including an exclusive reveal of Ariana Grande-faved body painting artist Alexa Meade's first solo exhibition (which will debut on Rodeo and will be open to the public daily). The stylish soirée will also feature a champagne garden, a plethora of food trucks, and more.
That's not all: To help Californians affected by the wildfires, donation tents will be set up throughout the event every Friday and Saturday for attendees who wish to drop off goods for those who have been displaced.
Following this week's grand unveiling ceremony, the streets of Rodeo Drive will continue come alive at night with new innovative installations taking the stage each week. On select dates, experience the West Coast debut of the luxe and stylish QuinCoach motorcycle coaches and gawk at one covered in 50,000 sparkling crystals. There'll also be a Hannukah concert, live ice art sculpting, an interactive peace wall, a ballerina performance atop a sleek grand piano, and even a little SoCal snow. Plus, get all your holiday retail therapy done after hours as some of your favorite Beverly Hills stores will keep their doors open late.
BOLD Holiday celebrations will also feature the return of BOLD rides throughout Beverly Hills in Midway Car Rental's exotic luxury cars, live holiday music in Beverly Canyon Gardens, and holiday art walks led by professionals.
BOLD Holidays in Beverly Hills will run every Friday and Saturday from 5pm to 8:30pm through December 22. For a full list of holiday festivities and more information, jingle all the way here.
