A Look Back at the Holidays in Fort Wayne

Another holiday season in Fort Wayne is now in the books for many of us! Today we take a look back at the season that was in Fort Wayne this year! While we couldn’t make it out to everything our area had to offer, here’s what really caught the eyes of our Instagram photographers. The “Snow Days” exhibit is now open at The Conservatory! #DTFW #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Nov 21, 2017 at 9:43am PST We started off the Christmas season in November when we checked out the “Snow Days” exhibit at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, an enclosed conservatory located right in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. Check them out year round for more events and activities. Holiday Pops with @fwphil at @fwembassytheatre! #FortWayne ❄️ A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 9, 2017 at 12:37pm PST On December 9 we headed out to the Holiday Pops from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic at the beautiful Embassy Theatre. If you are new to Fort Wayne and love music, the FW Phil and the Embassy are a must-see. @jeffersonpointe is lit up for the holidays! #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 11, 2017 at 3:00pm PST Fort Wayne has plenty of holiday shopping options with Jefferson Pointe (along with Glenbrook Square) being two of the largest in the area. Jefferson Pointe was decked out for Christmas with a beautiful display in front of Von Mour. Broadway is waiting for you. #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 21, 2017 at 10:51am PST Broadway Street was buzzing with holiday cheer this year from the lighting event at Electric Works to the classic “Christmas on Broadway” tree. Open for Holiday Memories 🌭 A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 24, 2017 at 3:50pm PST Fort Wayne’s Famous Coney Island wiener stand got in on the spirit this year by opening a holiday gift shop next door. We hope you enjoyed a white Christmas here in #fortwayne! A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 25, 2017 at 3:18pm PST The area (hopefully) enjoyed a white Christmas before the current dip into a deep freeze! We took a quick stroll along Fairfield Avenue in the 46807 ZIP code to take in the scene. #FortWayne was full of new stories in 2017. See which ones our readers viewed the most in our blog today.
