The City of Menifee is excited to announce the 2016 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, which will be held on December 10th, 2016 at Menifee Town Center from 4pm to 9pm. This year’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will continue Menifee traditions such as the Kids Snow Zone (40 tons of snow), ornament decorating for children, over fifty food and craft vendors and a visit from Santa Claus. This year’s event will consist of even more holiday performances from local community groups, including: Paloma Valley High School’s band, several faith-based performances and variety of dance and performing arts groups.

The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is a free event, with the exception of a $5.00 wristband for unlimited access to the snow zone. Menifee Town Center (located at Newport Road or La Piedra Road and Menifee Town Center) will be open from 7pm to 10pm nightly from December 11th to December 26th, 2016 for residents to enjoy the Oak Tree lights after the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony has commenced.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to see Santa and Mrs. Claus make their grand entrance. Santa will be arriving on a Fire Engine navigated by Cal Fire and escorted by Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. Santa and Mrs. Claus will join the City Council and other Elected Officials in the lighting of the tree, and will later pose for family photos after the lighting of the tree has concluded (attendees are asked to bring their own camera for a snapshot of their children with the jolly couple). Additional photo opportunities include a large “Usie Picture Frame” (a selfie for couples) for families to create a memory celebrating their time at the event. Be sure to bring your camera! #MenifeeHolidays “The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is a Menifee tradition we are proud to continue, “said Community Services Director, Robert Lennox. “It is a great event that offers residents the opportunity to gather together to celebrate the holiday season while also enjoying a variety of vendors and activities.”
