Get in the holiday spirit in downtown Claremont tonight
The city of Claremont kicks off the holiday season on Friday, December 6 with the yearly Holiday Promenade and Tree Lighting Ceremony, taking place in the Claremont Village.
The seasonal festivities commence at 5 p.m. with opportunities to take pictures with Old St. Nick and his missus at city hall. One of Santa’s reindeer helpers will also be on scene for a photo op or two. The Claremont High School Chamber singers, Moultrie Academy, The Wonderelles and 210 Sax Quartet will help set the tone with live music, along with the accompaniment of holiday carolers.
At 6 p.m. head to the Claremont Depot for the city’s tree lighting ceremony. While you’re there, exchange incandescent holiday light strands for new LED bulbs. One strand per household, while supplies last. For more information on this year’s yuletide celebration, visit www.ci.claremont.ca.us or call 399-5490.
