CARLSBAD, Calif. -- (October 14, 2019) -- The holiday season officially gets underway with "The Lighting of the Forum" -- a festive evening of fun for the whole family at The Forum Carlsbad on Saturday, November 30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The 17th Annual "Lighting of the Forum" will feature a live stage show featuring the “Crown City Bombers” from 6 to 7 p.m., Santa's Grand Arrival on a horse-drawn wagon at 7:20 p.m. and Holiday Light Show and Magical Snowfall just after Santa flips the switch to light the tree. Santa will be welcomed in style with an escort by the La Costa Canyon High School Marching Band.
Complimentary refreshments will be available after the tree lighting provided by many of the restaurants at The Forum Carlsbad. Prize drawings, held after the tree lighting and throughout the rest of the evening, will give guests the chance to get a jump on their holiday shopping or just to treat themselves!
Once Santa fulfills his tree lighting duties and oversees the Holiday Light Show and Magical Snowfall, he will visit with children for the rest of the event listening to gift requests!
