We are ringing in the holiday season with our 47th annual Holiday Tree Lighting celebration on Tuesday, December 5 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Families and friends are invited to Plaza Park for a festive evening filled with holiday joy and cherished memories. The holiday tree will be illuminated at 7 p.m. as Santa Claus makes a grand entrance atop the San Gabriel Fire Department’s vintage fire truck.
Community members are invited to explore a wonderland of festivities such as mini train rides, ornament decorating, and free photo opportunities with Santa and the dazzling fire truck. The holiday spirit will come to life with heartwarming musical performances by local talents, including the Dewey Woodcraft Rangers, Gabrielino High School Choir, San Gabriel High School Marching Band, and Community Services’ dance class students.
