Key Largo’s Murray Nelson Government & Cultural Center transformed into a winter wonderland on Nov. 18 for the 14th annual Light Up Key Largo. Organized by the Key Largo Community Preservation Foundation, young attendees ran through fluffy, fake snow generated from a machine. Craft stations were set up for the tykes to decorate cookies and crafts, and a long line of children eagerly waited to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. The night was highlighted by the lighting of “Holly” the Christmas tree. Hundreds circled the tree, counting down to the tree’s illumination. Surprising the crowd was an iguana that served as the official tree topper alongside the star.
