ARMANDS CIRCLE BIDS A FORMAL WELCOME TO THE HOLIDAY SEASON Staff Reports Standing several people deep in many spots, a crowd gathered on St. Armands Circle on the balmy night of Dec. 6 to mark the shopping district's Holiday Night of Lights. With a performance by the Cuban Ballet School, a carol sing-along, the lighting of the St. Armands Circle Christmas tree and — of course — the arrival of Santa, participants found plenty to delight the eyes and ears. The event also encouraged donations of items to the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program and cans of food to All Faiths Food Bank. Staff Photographer Norman Schimmel was on hand to capture the festivities. % A 'Night of Lights' The St. Armands Christmas tree stands tall in the shopping district.
