Santa encourages you to celebrate the holidays safely this year while still supporting your local Roxborough businesses | Studio Luminoso

With the safety of our community a top priority, the Roxborough Development Corporation invites you to get in the holiday spirit by enjoying the lights, greens, and special places along Ridge Avenue.

Our 14-foot-high holiday tree, trio of carolers in lights, and colorful murals all offer unique, only-in-Roxborough spots for a holiday selfie or family photo.
