Victoria Garden’s Tree Lighting is Tonight at 7:00 pm

Simone Graham – Editor: Victoria Garden’s Tree Lighting is tonight at 7:00 p.m. I thought was getting ahead of the game by checking to see when the malls are going to start the Christmas festivities. Surprise! The Santa Arrival Event complete with fireworks and tree lighting is happening today. In order to accommodate all guests, this event will be standing only. No chairs or blankets will be permitted in Chaffey Town Square throughout the duration of the event.

Get there early to enjoy the strolling Charles Dickens Carolers quartet singing traditional carols, popular holiday songs, novelty tunes and children’s favorites – all in four part harmony. Chaffey Town Square & Monet Plaza, 4:00-7:00 p.m. The Satin Dollz will deliver a sizzling performance of song, dance, music and irresistible charm celebrating Christmas classics.
