The City of Culver City’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (Culver City PRCS) and Culver City Downtown Business Association are combining forces to create a grand holiday kickoff celebration on Thursday, December 5.
The Tree Lighting Sled-Tacular will take place from 5 to 8 PM in Culver City’s Town Plaza (outdoors at the intersection of Culver Boulevard and Van Buren Place) and is free for all to enjoy.
“There isn’t a better way to gear up and celebrate the holidays than with our annual tree lighting,” said Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells. “A product of a number of local groups, the Sled-Tacular is a fine example of Culver City coming together to kickoff the holidays with celebration and community. I look forward to seeing everyone at the festivities!”
