Del Mar Highlands Town Center lights up with holiday decor

Del Mar Highlands Town Center in Carmel Valley is decked out for the holidays.

Families are invited to stroll the center and enjoy Del Mar Highland’s Town Center’s Tis the Sea Sun’s interactive décor this year, from a towering 36-foot Christmas tree made of 44 surfboards with inlaid LED lights and music to a spectacular 15-foot surfing Santa pulled by four of his reindeer on top of the Sky Deck roof. Guests can enjoy a conversation with “Delmer” the talking penguin, take a tour inside a gigantic igloo, snap a selfie with huge festive starfish, send wish lists to the North Pole with letters to Santa, drive through a lit-candy cane forest with sparkling stars.
