Little Italy Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony
Celebrate the holidays with Little Italy as the iconic neighborhood lights up the night during the 14th annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, December 6, from 4-8pm, on W. Fir between India and Kettner Streets. Families, friends, neighbors, and visitors are invited to celebrate the season during this beloved Little Italy tradition and see Little Italy’s brand new Christmas Tree — a 25-foot tower of gorgeous Poinsettias — located in the center of Piazza Basilone.
Spectators will be able to enjoy the community’s festive decorations, live music and entertainment, free cookies, cider and coffee, and more. Additionally, there will also be plenty of seasonal vendors selling holiday gifts and goodies — perfect for stocking stuffers!
The Little Italy Association also called in a few favors to the North Pole, and Santa Claus himself will be making an extra special appearance at M Winehouse to meet and greet with all of the neighborhood kids and kids at heart. (619.233.3898, www.littleitalysd.com)
