Join the fun on at 6pm on Cannery Row when Santa flips that giant switch to light a towering 25-foot holiday tree at the 15th Annual Cannery Row Holiday Tree Lighting. The festivities take place in Steinbeck Plaza, where Santa will also be posing for photos with good little and not-so-little girls and boys. Admission is free, as are surrey rides (aka ‘struggle buggies’) that evening.
And if you miss the first event, Santa will be back every weekend before Christmas for photos and to listen to all of your Christmas wishes. For lots more about Monterey Peninsula holiday events, please check out: http://www.seemonterey.com/montereyholidays
Locals to the area can park for free at the Cannery Row parking garage after 4pm. Just show a driver’s license with a 9-3-9 zip code, and enjoy everything Cannery Row has to offer.
