Winterlit, Santa Monica’s holiday celebration, transforms Third Street Promenade and Downtown Santa Monica into an immersive experience for the whole family. Tens of thousands of colorful lights, decor and garland will deck the Third Street Promenade, 2nd and 4th Streets, illuminating convenient shopping and festive outdoor dining experiences.

Santa comes to the Promenade for the annual lighting of the official City of Santa Monica 24-foot-tall holiday tree. Joins Downtown Santa Monica for performances by local school groups, free photos with Santa and a snowy surprise.
