My favorite part of the holiday season is the lights. Even more than gifts. Really. And I like gifts a lot. In November and December I love walking down Del Mar amidst the white lights. It gets me in the holiday spirit.
A fun event I always attend around this time of year is “Puttin’ on the Glitz”. It’s a great way to kick-off the holiday season. Presented by the San Clemente Downtown Business Association, it’s an evening when you can visit shops, take a photo with Santa or enjoy live entertainment. I usually walk up and down Del Mar, stop into The Cellar for a glass of wine and then spend too much money in the beautifully decorated stores. Tis the season, right?
Of course you don’t have to follow my lead. There will be many other fun offerings such as horse-drawn carriage rides, face painting, balloon artists, magicians and even roasted chestnuts.
Details: Saturday, November 27th from 5:00 – 9:00 pm on Avenida Del Mar.
