Del Mar Highlands Town Center Celebrates the Holidays with ’Tis the Sea Sun Events

The Center to host the community for Interactive Décor, Small Business Saturday, Christmas Community Event, Hullabaloo sing-alongs, Santa Visits, and more.

Del Mar CA— With over 70 existing retailers spanning over 400,000 square feet of best-in-class offerings tailored to Carmel Valley’s residents and community, Del Mar Highlands Town Center is the one-stop-destination for the holiday season.

The Center is giving the surrounding coastal community even more reason to celebrate with their ‘Tis the Sea Sun events throughout November and December. Festive decorations, Sip & Stroll, Christmas Community Event, Hullabaloo sing-alongs, and visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus will bring the holiday spirit to Carmel Valley all season long.

EXPERIENCE THE EXCITEMENT OF ’TIS THE SEA SUN AT DEL MAR HIGHLANDS TOWN CENTER! – STARTING NOVEMBER 12

Starting November 12, families are invited to stroll the Center and enjoy Del Mar Highlands Town Center’s ’Tis the Sea Sun’s exciting interactive décor.  New to the Center this year is the towering 36-foot Christmas tree made of 44 surfboards with inlaid LED lights with light and music shows every 30 minutes and a spectacular 15-foot surfing Santa pulled by four of his reindeer on top of The Sky Deck roof.  At this new community gathering space at the south end of the Center, guests will also get to see the recently unveiled 16-foot “Drifter” whale fountain installation created by artist Matt Torrens.
