The event will take place at 6 p.m. in the Culver City Town Plaza, at the intersection of Culver Blvd. and Van Buren Pl., next to the Culver Hotel and ArcLight Cinemas. Admission is free.

Downtown businesses will be providing hot cider, hot chocolate, cookies, and other holiday treats during the festivities. The Mayor, City Council Members, and local choirs will be making appearances and providing entertainment. Santa Claus is also scheduled to make a special visit.

The tree for this year’s Holiday Tree lighting ceremony is a “green” and energy efficient artificial Rocky Mountain pine that stands 22-feet tall and is covered with over 7,500 warm-white LED lights.

After the lighting ceremony is over, Martin Feinberg, Realtor encourages participants to stay around and check out what the downtown section of the Culver City Real Estate area has to offer.

According to the press release, “Culver City’s downtown area is Southern California’s best kept secret, featuring a wonderful mix of historic buildings, boutiques, theaters, galleries, and unique restaurants opening on to tree-lined streets.”

For those with some time to spare, staying after the tree lighting for some dinner “at one of Downtown Culver City’s many restaurants” or taking a walk “down the boulevards” could be the perfect ending to the evening.

For those driving to the event, free parking will be available for up to one hour in any of the downtown public parking structures. The Downtown universal valet parking system will also be available. Just drop your vehicle at one of the four convenient locations and pick it up at another one.

Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor, hopes to see everyone there and to be able to “celebrate peace, good will and the holiday season” with many other Culver City community members.
