The Tree Lighting is sure to get you into the holiday spirit if you aren’t already! Why not join this annual celebration, along with lots of Carlsbad residents at the Carlsbad Village Faire! As a result, you should plan your timing to find parking nearby.

As always, the Holiday Tree Lighting and festivities are sponsored by the Rotary Club of Carlsbad.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive in an antique fire truck to be there for photos, and handing out candy canes. In addition, there will be plenty of fun, music, cider, coffee and cookies.

Entertainment will include the Renaissance Institute of Music Orchestra and the Carlsbad High School Jazz Band. The Carlsbad High School Lancer Dancers and XCalibur dance teams will also perform.

Finally, the main event, the Tree Lighting, will take place at the end of the celebration around 4:30. Major Blackburn will do the honors.

What a great way to usher in the holidays in the Village with this popular event. Perhaps I will see you there.
