It’s that time of the year again. Time to take a break from Los Angeles real estate and concentrate on the last holiday of the year – Christmas.
If you are spending Christmas in Los Angeles let’s see what’s happening this year and where you can go to get the spirit of Christmas in a city that may be in the 80s.
Downtown on Ice - November 15th to January 21st.
This is the 15th annual event which takes place in Pershing Square in front of the recently remodeled Biltmore Hotel. This is L.A.’s largets outdoor rink and amongst other events you will be able enjoy, championship skating exhibitions, a concert series and festival. This is a great family event.
Los Angeles Philharmonic Deck the Hall
From December 12 to New Year’s Eve the L.A. Phil will be putting on a series of concerts guaranteed to meet everyone’s taste.
The Grove is one of Los Angeles’ newer upscale shopping malls. Be sure to visit the tallest Christmas tree in Los Angeles, and one time tallest in the country, check out the decorations, watch the music show at the fountains, see a move, dine, or shop ’til you drop.
Over the years, Rodeo Drive has had some spectacular (and expensive) Christmas decorations, including Baccarat crystal chandeliers and Swarovski crystals. So far this year there is nothing so elegant. The trees are twinkling, but check back and maybe you will be surprised.
Candy Cane Lane
This is an unofficial name for an area in Woodland Hills in the San Fernando Valley where every year residents try to outdo each other with decorations. It takes place throughout the season on a couple of blocks around Oxnard and Lubao, starting at 7:00 p.m. Since this is a residential area the locals ask that you not drive by after 10:00 p.m. during the week and 11:00 p.m. during the weekend.
On December 1st Los Angeles Chinatown Christmas tree lighting is probably one of the most unique you will see, decorated with Chinese influence. This will be followed by local music groups singing Christmas carols. It should be an enchanting evening.
If you feel like a drive then the Newport Beach Boat Parade is a 100-year holiday tradition which has grown into an event watched by over one million people each year.
Or, much closer, is the Naples Christmas Boat Parade in Long Beach. This takes place on December 15th at 6:00 p.m. For more information and viewing locations check out their site.
Griffith Park Christmas Lights has been cancelled this year.
