A wise viking once said, “If words leave the lips, they travel.”
In that case, head to Norse Way this Friday, Dec. 14 for the 1st Annual HOLIDAYLIGHT the Nite presented by 5th District Long Beach Councilwoman Stacy Mungo and the Norse Way Business Association.
HOLIDAYLIGHT the Nite is a free community event and holiday-themed street festival celebrating the unique shopping corridor made up of small and locally owned businesses on Norse Way. It’s the inaugural celebration of the new festoon lighting and street repair completed in the area.
“I am so excited to join our neighbors and small businesses for this fun holiday event where we get to enjoy the newly installed overhead string lights,” Councilwoman Mungo said. “This will support a family-friendly environment and give opportunities for more community events just like this.”
This event is not only a chance to support small businesses for all your holiday shopping needs, but it’s also a way to get in the holiday spirit. There will be an opportunity to take pictures with Santa, pal around with the Grinch and the Patriot Guard Riders motorcycle club, and rock out to a live music performance from local Long Beach legends, King Salmon Band.
The inaugural lighting ceremony and character entrance will happen at 6 p.m. sharp, so don't be late. You don’t want to miss seeing Santa ride into the event on a vintage Long Beach Fire Department truck!
All businesses will hold late hours into the evening to host event festivities. Additional and free parking may be found across the street at Boeing – 4020 N Lakewood Blvd.
Tell your friends. Everybody is invited!
