Main Street Santa Monica to Celebrate the Holidays with Festive Extravaganza
The holidays are just around the corner and historic Main Street in Santa Monica will be getting in the spirit on Dec. 7th when they host street-wide holiday parties and sidewalk sales. Over 55 businesses will be participating, offering holiday beverages, snacks, sweets, door prizes and more.
Santa will be arriving in his sleigh (a Santa Monica Fire Truck) at the museum lawn to pose for photos with the kids on December 7th at 5 p.m. Guests can tell Santa if theyve been naughty or nice for free, and are encouraged to bring their own camera to snap these holiday memories.
At 6 p.m. on Dec. 7th, there will be a tree lighting ceremony with music by the Samohi Choir and Green Brooms Music Academy on the California Heritage Museum lawn. Afterwards, Santa will lead the Candlelight walk to the famous Shopping Cart tree at the Edgemar courtyard, complete with music by the Off Their Jingle Bell Rockers and Th3 Trip. For the rest of the evening, Santa and the caroling groups will stroll the street and attend the parties, with Santa available for more photos and a hearty Ho Ho Ho!
The sidewalk sales take place on both December 7th and 8th during the hours of 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
