• Grinch Cannot Steal San Gabriel’s Christmas Festivities


    The Grinch could not steal Christmas from San Gabriel despite the epic windstorm that wreaked havoc in the San Gabriel Valley. Even though the traditional holiday tree in the middle of Plaza Park toppled over, the holiday cheer will be in full swing at the City of San Gabriel’s lighting ceremony. The event will take place Tuesday, December 6 at San Gabriel’s Plaza Park, 428 S. Mission Drive.

    The 35th Annual Holiday program will begin at 6:00 p.m. Materials will be provided at the park for children to make decorations for the trees in Plaza Park. Entertainment will be provided by the Jefferson Middle School 6th Grade Chorus and Advanced Orchestra and the Mission Elementary School Chorus. Both groups will perform familiar carols and special selections from their Holiday Programs.

    At 7:00 p.m., the Honorable David R. Gutierrez, Mayor of San Gabriel, will turn on the holiday lights and officially kick off the holiday season. Santa will then arrive in a Fire Truck, escorted by the San Gabriel Fire Firefighters, and he will greet everyone who wants to share their holiday wishes with him. Come sip cocoa or coffee and enjoy some pan dulce with your neighbors as we welcome in the holidays.

    This event is sponsored by The Women’s Division of the San Gabriel Chamber of Commerce, El Pavo Bakery, Starbucks Coffee and the City of San Gabriel. Please bring a new unwrapped toy for the San Gabriel Fire Department’s Sparks of Love Program and receive a raffle ticket for a chance for 4 people to ride with Santa on the fire truck as he visits San Gabriel neighborhoods in December. Drawing will take place after Santa arrives at the park. Everyone is invited to attend and visit with Santa, so finalize your holiday wish list. For more information please call the San Gabriel Parks and Recreation Department at (626)308-2875.
