It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays on Blvd.

SANTA listened to Christmas wishes at last year’s Open House on Larchmont Blvd. This season he also arrived on a fire truck.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas along Larchmont Boulevard. From the red bows that have popped up along the north end of Larchmont to the trees at the Wilshire Rotary tree lot, to the Holiday Open House last week, it’s clear that the holidays have arrived in full force.

Wilshire Rotary tree lot

The Wilshire Rotary tree lot at 568 N. Larchmont is open. Noble, silvertip and Douglas firs arrived the weekend after Thanksgiving. However, there will be no Nordmann or Fraser firs this year, says Wendy Clifford. They were unable to source them from any of the tree farms they contacted.

But they do have a variety of sizes to choose from. People should be able to find the right tree (or wreaths or boughs) for their spaces. Clifford noted.

Battle of the bells

Stop by the tree lot to see the “Battle of the Bells” presented by the Salvation Army; a friendly competition between the Los Angeles Host Lions Club and Wilshire Rotary to see how much money can be raised by each organization on Sat., Dec. 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Holiday open house; red bows

Small businesses up and down Larchmont Boulevard participated in the Holiday Open House and Small Business Saturday event on Nov. 30. Besides the visit by Santa Claus, musicians from Rhodes School of Music played along the street.

Local dentist Dr. Timothy Gogan and his “elves” already had spruced up Larchmont Boulevard’s trees with large red corsage bows from Third Street to Melrose Avenue.
