IRVINE, CA (Nov. 12, 2015): Celebrate the season as the Irvine Civic Center transforms into a Winter Wonderland on Sunday, Dec. 6 from 5-8 p.m.
The City’s newest event will feature a 25-foot-tall tree adorned with ornaments and holiday lights; a Joyful Jingles holiday concert; children’s activities; and train rides. Guests can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a festive tree-lighting as “snow” gently falls over the piazza. Children are in for a special treat when Santa stops by for a visit.
Guests at the free event are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped gift suitable for infants or children up to age 12 to support the 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee Holiday Toy Drive. The 2/11 Marine Committee provides charitable and educational activities and support for the benefit and welfare of the United States Marines and their families assigned to Camp Pendleton, with special emphasis on the Marines and families of the 2nd Battalion, 11th Marines.
