Lights On Celebration to have theme of ‘Through the Eyes of a Child’

Courtesy of the Hollister Downtown Association:

The Hollister Downtown Association is proud to sponsor its 28th Annual Lights On Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 24.

Residents are invited to this wonderful family-friendly community day-long event that brings up to 10,000 people to downtown.  This year’s parade theme is “Through the Eyes of a Child” and will be led by Jaime the Elf.

The celebration begins with the Decorate-A-Tree Contest at Veterans’ Plaza from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., a car display on Seventh Street featuring our 2018 Street Festival & Car Show’s Best Car Club winners, Central Coast Muscle Cars and Classics, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a Holiday Food Court on Seventh and San Benito Streets. Local community entertainment will take place in two locations along San Benito Street from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the famous twinkling light parade, presented by PG&E, will step off promptly at 5:30 pm. Pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus will take place at Veterans’ Plaza immediately following the parade. As always, attendance and parking are free.
