Festivities kick off on Tuesday, December 5, at 6:00 pm in the Plaza Park, at 428 S. Mission Drive in San Gabriel. The Tree Lighting is scheduled for 7:00 pm.

The Community Services Dance Classes will showcase their performers. Musical performances by the Dewey Woodcraft Rangers, Gabrielino High School Choir, San Gabriel High School Marching Band and Community Services’ dance class students will bring the holiday spirit.
After the Tree is lit, Santa should settle in for traditional interaction with the kids. There will be mini train rides, ornament decorating, and photo opportunities. New this year is a Taste of San Gabriel. Attendees can enjoy free bite sized food samples from various San Gabriel eateries.
