On November 16, 2017 local Beverly Hills celebrity DJ, Balthazar Getty, kicked off the Annual Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Celebration, hosted by Top Chef Junior Host, Vanessa Lachey, with an incredible performance by Grammy nominated songwriter and producer, Robin Thicke! Thousands of guests enjoyed the delicious food experiences lining the 200 block, from vendors such as Coolhaus, Jogasaki Sushi Burrito, The Grilled Cheese Truck, Cousins Maine Lobster, Pico House, to name a few. From a rappelling Santa to the incredible gems that glittered along the median, Rodeo Drive was iridescent with sparkle. The night was topped off by a spectacular firework show, leaving all who attended in awe and happy for the holiday season to be among us!
It was an evening full of families, love and fun!
And we cannot forget the stunning chandeliers from Baccarat hanging above the street while its palm trees came to life with colorful lights. A special Thank You to GEARYS Beverly Hills and Baccarat for sponsoring this year’s event and providing the dazzling chandeliers!
Additionally, Rodeo Drive will once again be staying open later on Fridays and Saturdays until 8.00pm as part of our ‘12 days of BOLD Holidays’ campaign! We invite everyone to come take a selfie with LA’s most famous at the Bizbash award-winning instagrammable Art Installation and follow the sidewalk art down the glamorous and illuminated Rodeo Drive.
