Kick off the holiday season this year with three free celebrations: 

Annual Holiday Tree Lighting & Winter Wonderland
Saturday, December 5, 2015
3-8 p.m. California Center for the Arts, Escondido 
This annual community event brings the North Pole to the heart of Escondido. Children will have the chance to frolic in real snow, decorate their very own Christmas cookies, and create fun, hand-made gifts for their loved ones. The highlight for kids is, of course, Santa Claus himself, but there will also be a number of holiday-themed entertainers—from carolers, to stilt walkers, to hula dancers—for all ages to enjoy. Food and drink will be available to warm your hands and hearts, and a number of local businesses will be displaying their wares for your holiday shopping needs.
