The City’s annual Light Up Main Street celebration in Old Town Newhall, happening on Saturday, November 21, will begin at 6:00 p.m. with festive dance and music performances from local groups, including William S. Hart High School and Santa Clarita Master’s Chorale. The Santa Clarita City Council will officially turn on the lights around 7:00 p.m. to transform Main Street into a winter wonderland. The street will be adorned with thousands of lights and a 23-foot Christmas tree in front of the Old Town Newhall Library will serve as an anchor to the festive street.
In addition to the stunning light display, holiday enthusiasts can also enjoy food trucks and the chance to take a commemorative photo with Santa and Mrs. Clause.
This year, the American Cancer Society will be providing the community an opportunity to remember their loved ones by purchasing a golden luminaria bag. Bags will be available for a $15 donation, or a $10 donation when accompanied by a canned food item. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society. Volunteers from the American Cancer Society will line Main Street with the illuminated bags.
Free public parking for both the Old Town Newhall Sip N’ Shop and the Light Up Main Street celebration will be available at the Old Town Newhall Library, the Metrolink Station and at several public parking lots on and around Main Street.
