Spreading Joy Around The Charles Neighborhood
Charleston is getting ready for the holidays! All around the city, homes and businesses are decking the halls with their most festive decorations. Pay an evening visit to The Jasper at 320 Broad Street to take a photo with The Jasper star, a showstopping 20-by-20-foot star located at the ground level plaza between the office and residential buildings along Broad Street. Snap and share your friends and family photos and tag #JasperStar2021 for a chance to win a beautiful gift basket, compliments of The Jasper. Afterwards, make the short walk to Colonial Lake to take in their renowned Christmas tree. Set in the middle of the lake, the tree is lit in a ceremony held by the Charleston Parks Conservancy on Friday, December 4.
