Elsa and Anna, from the movie, “Frozen,” weren’t the only cold characters as they posed for photos with shivering children at the first annual Christmas on Lomax Block Party and Toy Drive Dec. 9 in Historic 5 Points. One block of Lomax, between Oak and Park Streets was closed for the party, which included a gigantic blow-up Christmas tree. Visitors were encouraged to drop off an unwrapped gift to be donated to the Children’s Christmas Party of Jacksonville held the following weekend.

In addition to the Frozen actresses, Santa Claus and members of the Roar of the Jaguars were on hand to help warm things up as boys and girls decorated ornaments and cookies while their parents shopped specials at Lomax Street boutiques and enjoyed snacks courtesy of Good Dough, Bread and Board, BREW 5 Points and Grassroots Natural Market.

Sponsors of the block party included Gloss Goods, Root Realty, Generation Us and FreshThread Custom Apparel.
