We have just begun October and that means planning for Christmas ofcourse. If you live in LA this is good news as there will be a few Christmas events happening in 2022 very soon!

If you’re looking for some Christmas events in Los Angeles, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’ll discuss the Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Celebration, the annual holiday cruise from Santa Monica Place, and The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Journey.

Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Celebration

The Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Celebration is the city’s annual kickoff to the holiday season. The event features thousands of twinkling holiday lights, live performances, and a visit from Santa Claus. It is a popular event, and each year brings more than one million visitors to the area. However, this year’s lighting celebration is less well-known than in years past.

Santa Monica Place’s annual holiday cruise

This holiday season, Santa Monica Place will be brimming with festive festivities. On November 28, the Santa Monica Place snow globe will be lit and Santa Claus will greet the kids on the Santa Monica Pier. On December 5 and 6, the Third Street Promenade will be lit with Menorah lightings. There will also be performances by the Santa Monica Beach Belles inside a 14-foot larger-than-life snow globe. And, during select performances, the Westside Ballet will perform “The Nutcracker.” Also, the annual Santa Monica holiday pub crawl will raise money for the Westside Food Bank.

Saddleback Ranch’s Lights of Display

The lights of display on Saddleback Ranch are a great place to start a holiday season. During the Christmas holiday season, you and your family can enjoy strolling through the lighted Christmas lands while sipping hot chocolate. There are even opportunities to take a picture of the illuminated night sky.

The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Journey

Los Angeles is home to The Elf on the Shelf’s Magic Holiday Journey, an immersive drive-thru adventure that will have you imagining you’re an elf in the big, bad world. You’ll help the Scout Elves build the Christmas Spirit, shrink down to elf size, and then go on an exciting quest to repair Santa’s sleigh.

The Beverly Center’s Science of Gingerbread

This holiday season, the Discovery Science Center will host the Science of Gingerbread. It’s the best smelling exhibit of the year. You’ll see rows of gingerbread houses and take part in a contest.
