Holiday cheer

Sunrise residents Olivia Dee, 6, and her friend Destiny Sato, 9, chase each other around the Christmas tree at Mizner Park during ‘Light Up Downtown Boca.’ It kicked off Nov. 19 with ‘Light the Lights,’ a celebration featuring a holiday tree lighting. A few storms moved through and soaked the crowd, making for a shorter celebration. Tim Stepien/The Coastal Star
