The Holidays Arrive at Fashion Island in Style!

November 1, 2016

The Holidays are already upon us! What better way to kickoff the season in Newport Beach than by experiencing Fashion Island’s classic tree lightning tradition. This annual ceremony will take place on November 18 and November 19 from 6:00pm – 6:30 pm in the Neiman Marcus-Bloomingdale’s Courtyard.

This year’s event will be hosted by KOST 103.5 FM’s radio personality, Mark Wallengren. Enjoy a 25-minute live musical performance of “The Magic of Christmas” starring The Young Americans. And most importantly, see Santa and Mrs. Claus bring the tree to life to help celebrate this festive time of year. If you’re lucky, you just might even experience some rare Southern California snowfall!

After the tree is aglow, and throughout the holiday season (November 28-December 24), be sure to grab a family picture with Santa himself, right near the tree in the Atrium Lawn.

Fashion Island truly is a great location for all your festive shopping and family needs this Christmas. Even if you don’t have enough time to shop, you can enjoy an unparalleled shopping experience with help from complimentary Personal Shopping and Styling services at Fashion Island. Their savvy and helpful stylists are up to date on the season’s hottest trends and gift ideas. They can do the shopping for you or guide you directly to the items you’re looking for.

Your days are sure to be merry and bright at Fashion Island this holiday season!
