Gallery Walk & Lighting of the Tree in Downtown Punta Gorda

This Gallery Walk is extra special and one not to be missed! At dusk the City Tree will be lit to officially kick off the holiday season! Take time to stop by and meet local authors, Chuck Emma and Mark Dossey. Also, enjoy a live demonstration from two local artists. AND, while you mingle inside partake of some foodie items, too! What better way to spend an evening out with old friends while you take the time to make new ones. We look forward to seeing you!
