Holiday Tree Lighting Dec. 6 at Fletcher Cove in Solana Beach

The City of Solana Beach’s Parks and Recreation Commission is hosting its annual Holiday Tree Lighting at Fletcher Cove Park from 5-7 p.m. Dec. 6.

This family-friendly event is free to the public. There will be plenty of sweets, treats, cider and coffee to go along with Santa Claus, a Nutcracker youth dance performance, a high school orchestra, and an award-winning professional pianist.

Fletcher Cove Park at 111 S. Sierra Ave. provides the perfect backdrop for this annual event.

Throughout the evening, the community will be entertained by the very merry music of award-winning pianist Robert Parker, the Santa Fe Christian High School Orchestra, and the Nutcracker Youth Dancers from the All Star Dance Studio.

Once the switch is flipped, and the tree lights turn on, all eyes will be watching for Santa’s arrival by a fire-truck escort, scheduled for 5:20 p.m.
