California Tree Lighting and Menorah Ceremonies


From Aptos to Redondo Beach, the Christmas Tree and Menorah Lightings are still going strong. It’s an old fashioned holiday in California and you don’t want to miss out on the community activities that are free, fun and often quite entertaining. Pictured is the inaugural tree & menorah lighting that included free carriage rides in Newport Beach’s Balboa Village last weekend. Here are ceremonies held on Tuesday, December 6, 2011!
