Ready to be lit up
— reported by the Pasadena Citizen
For more than a decade, Santa has been present at each Holiday Tree Lighting celebration that the city has hosted and will be on hand again this year to light the 20-foot Christmas tree outside City Hall with Pasadena Mayor John Manlove leading the way.
Fun additions to the activities this year will include Santa’s Workshop, where children can make a Christmas craft item to be taken home with them and the North Pole Café, where cookies made by the Silver Star Seniors will be handed out to children.
Former councilman Bill Welch will be the master of ceremonies. Festivities will begin around 6 p.m. Friday. Santa will arrive at 7 p.m.
