Ventura Christmas Tree Disposal is Easy as 1-2-3

Ventura Christmas tree disposal is as easy as 1-2-3. Strip it, cut it and set it in your brown bin for regular service. Includes garlands and wreaths.Christmas is over.  A brand new year begins at midnight tonight.  It’s time to take down your Christmas decorations.  For many in our Ventura community, that the tree.  But what do you do with it?  Ventura Christmas tree disposal is as easy as 1-2-3.

Ventura Christmas Tree Disposal

  1. Strip the tree.  Take off the decorations, tinsel, lights, etc.  Anything that wasn’t naturally a part of your Christmas tree needs to be removed from it before you toss it.
  2. Cut up the tree.  Before your Ventura Christmas tree disposal, cut the tree up into four foot sections or smaller.  This makes it easier to handle as well as ensures it will fit in your bin.
  3. Take it to the streets.  Put your cut up tree into your brown bin.  Then, place the bin outside your home on your regular curbside pick-up day.

We would like to leave you with one final though for the new year.  Just about everyone will be out celebrating tonight.  It’s great to have fun as long as you are responsible about it.  Make sure you have a designated driver before you go out.  Don’t have a designated driver?  Hire a driver for the evening.  Contact Uber.  Take a taxi to and from your destination.  You can always have a nice quiet celebration at home, too.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.  When there is a safe way to get to and from your festivities, take it.  Don’t become a tragic statistic.  Keep yourself and others safe this New Year’s Eve.

2015 Ventura Harbor Village Boat Parade of Lights

Search homes for sale in Ventura CountyThis year’s theme for the 2015 Ventura Harbor Village Boat Parade of Lights is “Surf, Sand and Santa”.  The parade starts at 6:30pm.  But you can come early and get some shopping done first.  Stop off at one of the wonderful seaside restaurants at the harbor and watch while you dine.  Carnival rides will be set up on the Main Lawn.  We’ve been told that Santa is going to make an appearance.  He’s taking last minute requests from good little boys and girls.  Then, if that isn’t enough for you, the parade will end with a brilliant fireworks display overhead at 8pm.

Plan on shopping before the festivities begin?  From 11am to 11pm on both Friday and Saturday, you can take the Downtown Harbor Trolley for free.  It has a set route along the harbor, with several pick up and drop off locations.  That way, you can park in one location before you jet off to the stores and restaurants along the way.  It will even take you right to the 2015 Ventura Harbor Village Boat Parade of Lights.  Afterwards, hop aboard for a trip back to your car.  How awesome is that?  You can view and/or download the Downtown Trolley’s schedule here.

2015 Downtown Ventura Christmas Tree Lighting

Search homes for sale in Ventura CountyA total of 21 missions were built in California between the late 1700s and early 1800s.  One of them is the location of the 2015 Downtown Ventura Christmas Tree Lighting tomorrow night.  The San Buenaventura Mission is the last of the missions that Father Junipero Serra founded in our great state.  We can’t think of a more beautiful backdrop for this fun Christmas event.

Santa will arrive at the 2015 Downtown Ventura Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at 6pm via fire truck.  Before he gets here, though, guests will enjoy traditional Christmas carols from several local area choirs.  Dance troupes will also perform for the awaiting crowds.  Make this memory last by taking a picture at the interactive snow globe booth.  Who says it doesn’t snow in Southern California?  I’ve got it on good authority that Santa is bringing a bit of the north pole with him.  After the lights turn on, the snow comes down!

We’re looking at clear skies but chilly weather for the 2015 Downtown Ventura Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.  The weatherman says it’s going to be around 60F tomorrow night.  Make sure you bundle up!
