Holiday ceremony will light up downtown Nov. 29
Holiday Songbook & Shopping Guide now available
The 27th annual “Holiday Lighting Ceremony” will officially bring holiday décor to downtown Paso Robles on Friday, Nov. 29. It’s the Friday after Thanksgiving. Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association recently released its annual Holiday Songbook & Shopping Guide to celebrate the occasion. Locals are invited to view the Holiday Songbook online and sing along at the event.
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 of Paso Robles and other city officials will speak, followed by candlelight caroling with musical accompaniment. Free cookies and hot chocolate will conclude the evening’s festivities. The lighting ceremony is a downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association event. For more information, contact the Main Street office at (805) 238-4103.
