The holidays are just around the corner and Manhattan Beach is gearing up for the Christmas season by hosting its Annual Open House and Pier Lighting on Wednesday, November 15th, and the yearly Holiday Fireworks show on Sunday, December 10th.

The Open House offers locals and tourists the chance to get together as a community and welcome in the season, plus engage in some Christmas shopping. The festivities begin at 5 PM when Santa Claus arrives at Metlox Plaza to greet all of the kids eager to tell the Big Guy what they want for Christmas. Then at 6 PM folks will be able to visit Downtown Manhattan Beach's restaurants and retailers for dinner and shopping. Businesses will be open until 9 PM so everyone can take their time to sample some of the outstanding gourmet dishes and find those must-have Christmas gifts.

The night is not complete without experiencing the annual Pier Lighting at the Manhattan Beach Pier at 7 PM. Now in its 28th year, the Pier Lighting offers a dazzling Christmas motif - California style. Come down and see this amazing event then take a stroll on the pier to admire the lights up close. This event is open to locals and tourists alike so no one has to feel left out.

The fun does not end there because in just a few short weeks Manhattan Beach's annual Holiday Fireworks show will complete the citywide celebration of the holiday season. The Holiday Fireworks show has thrilled audiences for almost 30 years and this year will not be different. The party begins at 4 PM when the Hyperion Outfall Serenaders will perform their rendition of "Dixieland Christmas." Those who would rather play in the snow can undertake the SKECHERS Snow Park and Sled Hill. This holiday favorite will satisfy that desire by offering the chance to sled down an actual snow slide. Admission is a cash donation or a new unwrapped toy. This ride will last until 6:30 PM so hurry down and experience this epic winter wonderland.

The Holiday Fireworks show will also feature a Santa Float at 4 PM, the Mira Costa Jazz Ensemble at 5 PM, and a Holiday Music Family Singalong with Joe's Band at 6 PM. At 7 PM, the main event begins as the SKECHERS Holiday Fireworks show kicks off. Brought to you by the fine folks at Belkin, the display of fireworks will provide a truly awesome holiday experience that will unite locals and tourists into one grand fellowship, and isn't that what this season is all about?
