Kickoff the holiday season with snow, music, lights and a visit with Santa on Friday, December 5
Monterey Park’s Annual Holiday Snow Village event will feature snow play and sled runs, holiday music, and pictures with Santa - all at the Barnes Park Amphitheater.
On Friday, December 5 at 6 p.m., the city will welcome Santa with carols and help him light the amphitheater and city displays. Attendees will be entertained by holiday music, snow play, refreshments and chances to win beautiful Christmas trees and other prizes in a holiday raffle. Participants are reminded to dress warm for this outdoor event and wear closed toe shoes to play in the snow.
