The festivities begin at 3 PM with some holiday shopping. Old Town Newhall’s annual Sip N’ Shop offers pre-Black Friday deals. Bring your list and check it twice, because the main street shops will be open and full of discount items that will make wonderful gifts for all ages. Don’t forget to sip while you shop. Grab a warm drink from one of the coffee shops nearby, or really treat yourself to some local wine from Pulchella Winery.
Once 6 PM rolls around, the holiday performances begin. This year, soak in some local live music. The Master’s Chorale, Hart High School Choir, and Canyon Theatre Guild are just a few of the groups who will be lifting up your spirits.
7 PM marks the event everyone looks forward to: The lighting of Main Street. Thanks to the Santa Clarita City Council, you can enjoy thousands of lights, beautiful holiday displays, and a 23-feet-tall Christmas tree. Watch the city transform from its everyday image to a winter wonderland right before your eyes!
Stick around for dinner. Food trucks will be lining the streets, so you’ll have plenty of options. And don’t forget to snag some photos with Mr. and Mrs. Claus to complete your evening!
Parking need not be a concern. There are several free parking lots around the area, and if you find yourself venturing toward Main Street a little late into the night, there’s also a free shuttle from Newhall Community Center from 5 to 9 PM.
The lights should be shining throughout the holiday season, but this event is only one day. Don’t miss out, because it’s not coming back for 12 more months! When it comes to Holiday events in Santa Clarita, this one’s a cant-miss!
