On Saturday, December 11 at 5:00 p.m., join Councilmember James Johnson and The Daisy Avenue Parade and Program Committee for the 57th Annual Daisy Avenue Christmas Tree Lane Parade.
“The Daisy Avenue Parade is special in that it is the only holiday parade that runs down a residential street and not a commercial corridor,” councilmemeber Johnson said.
Atlantic Avenue will be lit and decorated on December 3 for the “Holiday Edition of First Fridays.” There will be something for everyone with plenty of art, music, philanthropy, good cheer, and a tree and menorah lighting.
There’s nothing quite like a colorful tree twinkling in the crisp winter air to usher in some holiday cheer. If you missed last weekend’s tree lighting events, you’re in luck. There are still several Christmas tree lighting ceremonies planned around Long Beach.
The left-over turkey is put away and the holiday season is officially in full swing. The city will be filled with goodwill and holiday cheer everywhere you look. For those that like to stroll the streets looking at Christmas lights, there will be decorative lights downtown and uptown, along with Christmas trees and holiday parades, and shopping events with Santa.
