Monday: County Christmas Tree to Be Lit
Attendees celebrate the lighting of the 2009 tree.
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the Christmas season is well underway. Stores switched over their music to a holiday playlist on Friday, and now the County of Los Angeles gets into the spirit on Monday evening with the lighting of its official 50-foot tree on the Music Center Plaza.
The public is invited to the 5pm ceremony, which will be led by County Supervisor Michael Antonovich. Festivities will feature a performance by the Providence High School Choir of Burbank.
The Music Center will again be the center of Christmas festivities on December 24, when the 51st Annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration returns with three hours of free performances. A new wristband entry system is designed to reduce the time spent waiting in line for this year's event.
