Christmas time is here in the City of Santa Maria.
The City’s Christmas tree is now up and decorated in the City Hall Courtyard.
The tree is usually lit annually to mark the start of the Santa Maria Rotary Christmas Parade of Lights.
With this year’s parade canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the tree will instead be lit by Santa at the end of the Santa Maria City Council meeting on Dec. 1.
The lighting of the tree will be live streamed. More information on the live stream can be found here.
