How is it even possible that the Holidays are upon us? This year has flown by once again and here we are in the middle of November thinking about the big upcoming Rivalry Game, the UCLA-USC Game on Saturday November 22nd as well as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here are several not-to-be missed events that are coming up in the next two months….
Wed. Nov. 19th 6:00-9:00 PM – Manhattan Beach Holiday Open House and Pier Lighting: Join local restaurants, businesses and retail stores for a fun night of shopping and dining and strolling the streets of downtown Manhattan Beach. Christmas Carolers and Santa Claus and his helpers will be on hand to set the mood and officially kick-off the holiday season. The stores will stay open until 9:00 PM so you can get a jump start on your Christmas shopping and many will be offering special discounts and holiday promotions. The Mayor will flip the switch at 7:00 PM and illuminate the pier with holiday lights. This is a great Community event put on by our local restaurants, retail stores and businesses as a thank you to the Manhattan Beach Community for their patronage and support throughout the year.
Fri. Nov. 21st 7:00-11:00 PM – The 6th Annual Revelry before the Rivalry Party at the Bel Air Bay Club in the Pacific Palisades benefitting the Wooden Athletic Fund at UCLA.
