LAGUNA BEACH, CA – If you’re looking for ways to celebrate the season this holiday, here are some things that are happening in our city that you may or may not be aware of. Friday starts the vacation off right with the annual Laguna Beach Welcome Party and community Christmas tree lighting.
The Laguna Presbyterian Church at 415 Forest Ave said on Friday it would welcome guests for tamales, cookies and cider. Laguna Beach Hospitality Night Tree lighting was scheduled for 6:10 p.m. in the Peppertree parking lot. Consult the full program of the welcome evening and all the information on parking HERE.
