Holiday ceremony will light up Paso Robles Nov. 25
–The 30th annual “Holiday Lighting Ceremony” will officially bring holiday decor to downtown Paso Robles on Fri., Nov. 25.
The tradition will find Mrs. Santa Claus and other costumed characters gathering at the downtown city park bandstand at 5:30 p.m. They will be joined there by townspeople dressed warmly. The Cancer Support Community will be lighting the downtown city park trees.
Just before 6 p.m. candles and songbooks will be distributed. When the clock tower strikes 6 p.m., Mrs. Claus will throw the giant light switch, and the downtown lights in trees, shop windows and buildings will illuminate all at once.
The mayor and other city officials will speak, followed by candlelight caroling with musical accompaniment. Free cookies and hot chocolate will conclude the evening’s festivities.
