Light up the Holidays with the City of Corona
The City of Corona’s Library & Recreation Services Department will be hosting the annual Holiday Lighting Celebration on Sunday, December 1, 2019, from 3 to 7 p.m. on the Front Lawn of the Historic Civic Center, located at 815 W. Sixth St.
Enjoy a wonderful holiday atmosphere with live entertainment and warm refreshments served by the Corona-Norco United Way. Children can create something special at Santa’s Workshop with Crossroads Christian Church’s helpful elves, enjoy a train ride through the festival area, have their picture taken with Santa himself for only $6 (hosted by the Corona Parks Foundation), and play in 40 tons of real snow donated by Thomas Miller Mortuary! Adults of all ages will enjoy shopping for one of a kind items in the seasonal craft village. This year, guests will also have the opportunity to view a live performance of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” courtesy of OBCTheater.
Help children in our community by bringing an unwrapped toy for the Corona Fire Department’s “Spark of Love” toy drive. We have also partnered with Corona Regional Medical Center’s Hospice Auxiliary to host their “Luminaries of Life” tribute to remember a loved one.
The highlight of the evening will be the ceremonial lighting of the Historic Civic Center complex to launch the holiday season in Corona.
