Kickoff the holiday season with 20 tons of snow, music, lights and visits with Santa on Friday, December 7
Monterey Park’s 6th 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 7 at 6 p.m., the city will welcome Santa with carols and help him light the amphitheater and city displays. Following the tree lighting, attendees will be entertained by holiday music, snow play with two sled runs and a 900 square foot play area. The event will also have refreshments, a chance to take your picture with Santa and a Christmas tree raffle. Remember to dress warm for this outdoor event and wear closed toe shoes to play in the snow. In addition to Santa, look for special appearances by The Grinch.
