This magical event begins at 3:30 p.m., as Santa Claus comes to Old Towne Orange! We invite the whole community to come together and enjoy good cheer, photo opportunities with Santa, and activities which include crafts, carnival games, and a moon bounce. Food will be sold by local non-profit groups for a nominal fee, which goes to support their works in the community.


At 5:15 p.m. the official program begins with our traditional tree lighting ceremony. Once lit, the tree provides the backdrop as a 350-voice choir marches in a candlelight procession into the Plaza backed by a full orchestra led by musical director Michael Short. This year’s story narrator will be retired Orange Police Department Lt. Dave Hill.


This event is free, and open to the general public. In the event of rain, or for more information, please visit www.cityoforange.org or call the special events hotline at (714) 744-7278.
