The park will be decorated with thousands of Christmas lights. Santa will be arriving by fire engine at 5:15 followed by the official tree lighting.
The Oceanside High School Choir will perform on Friday, and Kerry Powell, local singer and performer, will sing on the 17th.
The cost is $5.00 for adults and children 12 and under are free. Every child will be able to make a special Christmas ornament to take home and get a cookie and candy cane.
The Heritage Park Foundation will have snacks available for purchase along with Taco Daddy Catering Truck. The North County Model Railroad Society will have their trains opened, there is one room where the children can actually run the trains themselves.
We are pleased that this event has truly become a community affair with Armstrong Nursery of Carlsbad donating our tree and Ocean Shores High School Students who will be helping with the arts and crafts.
We will be offering small stars, at 5.00 each to hang on the tree, and community members and organizations can purchase a nine inch star to have personalized to celebrate a special occasion or honor a family member or in memory of a loved one. We are asking a $25.00 donation for the personalized stars.
The proceeds from the stars will help fund the Rotary’s local charities that the club supports. If you would like a personalized star you may mail a check and what you would like on the Star to our Post Office Box, 504, San Luis Rey, CA 92068. Make checks payable to SLR Rotary. These stars will be hanging on the tree when you arrive and your entrance fee will be free.
