California Travel Tips

Colorful Lights at Night are Big Holiday Hit

Published on: September 07, 2019


With summer nearly over (officially becomes Fall on Monday, Sept.23, 2019 in Northern Hemisphere,) California’s festival and special events promoters are already busy spreading the word about holiday happenings.

Among them is Capistrano Lights (pictured) Dec.7, 2019-Jan.6, 2020 at Mission San Juan Capistrano, the first of many missions in California to alert to holiday happenings. The event features spectacular lighting on the walls of the seventh of 21 missions established in California. It was permanently founded by Junipero Serra on November 1, 1776.

While the city of San Juan Capistrano enjoys activities throughout the seasons, the mission is the centerpiece for tourism with summer concerts, a mariachi festival, return of the swallows & parade, and a host of seasonal, holiday celebrations.

We’ve also heard from Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden, about the return of Moonlight Forest Nov.9, 2019-Jan.12, 2020. Outdoor light installations (giant lanterns) include two new themes, Polar Dreams and Ocean Visions. This is one of Arcadia’s many festivals visitors look forward to.

In San Diego, home to hundreds, if not thousands of holiday festivals and events, Liberty Station has alerted us to the return of their tree lighting and Rady Children’s Ice Rink.  Little Italy’s Small Business Saturday on Nov.30, 2019 is one of the many events (such as holiday tree lighting, Halloween, etc.,) another agency has already begun promoting this year.

2019 holiday news just keeps coming our way — and we’re passing it on — to you!
