Local elves have been busy organizing for Santa’s arrival at the free and festive, all-community Ho!Ho!Ho! celebration on Saturday, December 11 at Simon Meadow in Temescal Canyon.
The seasonal fun kicked off today with the opening of the YMCA Christmas Tree Lot at Simon Meadow, corner of Sunset and Temescal Canyon Road.
Kids of all ages can begin composing and dropping their Letters to Santa in special Ho!Ho!Ho! mailboxes at Simon Meadow. Letters to Santa also can be dropped in special Ho!Ho!Ho! mailboxes at several restaurants and shops in Pacific Palisades. The best letters will be reprinted in Circling the News and receive prizes.
Can’t get to one of the special Ho!Ho!Ho! mailboxes? Letters to Santa also can be emailed to the address below.
Also today, our Digital Elves launched the extremely funny and popular Nextdoor Pet Photo Contest, where neighbors can upload or email pics of their pets for others to view and like. The most “liked” photos will win prizes donated by some of our most cherished small businesses.
These events are just a warmup to December 11 when Santa will visit the Christmas Tree Lot from 3 to 5 p.m. Along with Santa, there will be fire engines, popcorn, performances by the Fancy Feet dancers, hot chocolate with toppings, Cinque Terre croissants, Gerry Blanck Martial Arts demonstrations, a photo booth, singers, the wonderful smell of trees, and many more surprises!
See you there! Admission is free.
