JOIN US ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3 FOR THE ANNUAL HOLIDAY TREE LIGHTING CELEBRATION!
The holidays are almost here! Celebrate the joy, excitement and beauty of the season at the annual Holiday Tree Lighting, presented by the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce. This fun, family event will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at the South Pasadena Farmers’ Market, from 4:00 – 7:00 pm, and is a great kick-off of the holiday season.
Festivities will begin at 4:00 pm, with a wide array of entertainment and events. The entertainment line-up includes talented young musicians from the South Pasadena Music Center & Conservatory, the South Pasadena High School Marching Band, Los Angeles Children’s Orchestra, and the South Pasadena Community Children’s Choir. The evening ends on a toe-tapping note with the music of the Podunk Poets.
The highlight of the evening will happen at 5:30 pm, when Mayor Bob Joe will “flip the switch” and the tree will light up! Dozens of lights, glittery candy-cane and other colorful décor and the very special kids’ ornaments will certainly be a breathtaking sight!
Keep an eye out for Santa Claus’s grand entrance and the chance to visit and take photos with him. Santa will be available every Thursday before Christmas during the Farmers’ Market for photographs and for kids to share their Holiday Wish Lists. The Iron Works Museum will be decorated for the holidays, and the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation will have seasonal treats for visitors.
