Tree lighting and stroll kick off holidays in Orcutt

Posted at 7:20 PM, Nov 30, 2018

Families gathered in Old Town Orcutt Friday evening for the annual Christmas tree lighting and holiday stroll.

The stroll started at 5 p.m. with activities for the entire family, including hay rides, a photo booth, and face painting.

This marks the fifth year for the stroll.

Businesses stayed open late and offered cookies, hot chocolate, and hot dogs. There was also a special boutique inside the Lions Club.

“I love it. I think it’s great. I think last year we had probably between 750 and 1,000 people so it just keeps getting bitter. We try and keep adding different attractions,” said Kathryn Scott, owner of Glitter Kat Face Painting.

The tree lighting took place at 7 p.m., and festivities continued until 8 p.m.
