Ventura Tree Lighting

Ring in the holidays in style at the Ventura tree lighting on Fri, Nov 30, 2012 at 5pm. Free refreshments, live entertainment and a visit from Santa are all scheduled for attendees.Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s official, folks.  We have stepped into the holiday zone.  Tomorrow, November 30th, the City of Ventura will be holding its official tree lighting ceremony to ring in the holidays.

Beginning at 5pm, visitors and residents of the city are invited to gather in front of the Mission trees in downtown Ventura (211 E Main St) for live entertainment, including a choir singing traditional holiday favorites and a sing-a-long with spectators.  This year, the 20 foot tall tree has been decorated with new LED lights. Thanks to the generous donations of Ventura citizens, the Mission’s trees will be decked out in beautiful, multi-colored lights for the entire year, not just Christmastime.  You can even enjoy some light snacks and other goodies for free.

The mayor and other government officials will give a few brief words before the Ventura holiday tree is lit at 6:15pm.  After that, Santa is scheduled to ride in on a Ventura fire engine.  He’s given the reindeer the night off.  Free parking will be available surrounding downtown Ventura.

Start the holidays off right.  Come to the official Ventura tree lighting ceremony in downtown Ventura tomorrow, November 30th.  Festivities begin at 5pm but the fun lasts much longer.  Happy holidays!
