Local South Bay Area 2019 Holiday Events!
Palos Verdes home owners are getting ready for the 2019 holiday season. Here are some of the fun events that our neighboring cities are hosting.
Torrance Memorial Medical Center will be presenting their 36th annual “Holiday Festival” beginning Tuesday, December 3, 2019, and running through Sunday, December 8, 2019. The Festival will feature decorated trees and a holiday celebration that includes a food court, musical entertainment, children’s activities, and a large Holiday gift section. More than 30 trees are decorated with a different theme and will be sold with the proceeds going to the construction of the Torrance Memorial Hunt Cancer Center, a 2 story facility that will consolidate cancer treatment and services into a single location for patient care. The “Holiday Festival” is located in the parking lot under the big white tent adjacent to the hospital on Skypark & Medical Center Drives. The public can view the trees and boutique on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Wednesday & Thursday, December 4th & 5th, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturday, December 7, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday, December 8, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cost is $5 per person and free for children under 3 years old.
