Each night at 5pm, Santa's Christmas Village Tree Lighting takes place. You can gather around to join Santa and his elves for an illuminating sing-a-long.

Meet Santa in his cottage inside the Christmas Village, where you'll also find festive treats and entertainment. Of course, Santa's reindeer are vacationing in San Diego as well, so you can meet them near the Animal Encounter.
