The streets will positively shimmer from late November into the New Year 2012 as Beverly Hills Sparkles in a first-ever collaboration with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS (shown in photo is a previous holiday in Beverly Hills.) With cooperation with the City of Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive will glisten as a stunning, state-of-the-art crystal installation containing thousands of Swarovski Elements that adorn a helix-shaped sculpture, is featured prominently along the three blocks of this elite shopping district. The dazzling display combines light and technology to create a dramatic interactive holiday experience.
In addition to the holiday display on Rodeo Drive, look for activities throughout Beverly Hills including thousands of twinkling lights, brilliant holiday decor, street entertainment and the popular trolley rides.
One of Beverly Hills’ brightest stars among its public parks, Greystone Mansion (greystonemansion.org) also shines in December as Maison de Luxe, a national Designer Show House event, gets underway at this historic property. Experience all the grandeur of this magnificent estate while admiring the inspired work of more than 20 acclaimed designers who have re-imagined the space for the event. The public will have a rare opportunity to tour the newly renovated mansion and grounds, now a registered National Historic Landmark. At more than 46,000 square feet and with 18.5 acres of manicured gardens and landscape, this Baronial-style residence built in 1928 for the Doheny family is the largest, most stately designer show house in the country.
