Palos Verdes Residents Enjoy Local Area Holiday Fun!

Palos Verdes Residents Enjoy Local Area Holiday Fun!

Palos Verdes homes owners have many choices of holiday activities near the Peninsula during the holiday season.  On Saturday, December 9, 2017, the local 26th annual Holiday Boat Parade will take place in Redondo Beach at King Harbor.  Paddle craft boaters will be kicking off the parade at 4:30 p.m. with their decorated and lighted boards and they will be followed by power and sail boats which will be all decked out.  Each year there is a theme for the parade, and this year’s theme is “California Christmas.”  The parade’s Grand Marshall will be Vera Jimenez who will be leading the parade in the Grand Marshall boat, “Disappearance.”  For more information on the boat parade and trophy categories visit

Another great family activity during the holiday season is viewing the lights in Sleepy Hollow (a.k.a. Candy Cane Lane).  Tucked away in a South Torrance neighborhood is one of the most spectacular displays of Christmas lights in the South Bay, and possibly in the country, which can be viewed beginning December 1, 2017, through January 2, 2018.  You can walk or drive through Candy Cane Lane and get in the holiday spirit.  Sleepy Hollow Christmas Lights can be accessed at Roberts Road off Pacific Coast Highway, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. every night until New Year’s Eve.  Walking through the area is a much more relaxed, up-close view of all the displays without all the traffic.
