I am sure you would love to take your family to a kid-friendly holiday event in Southern California.  But I am also sure you want this event to be as safe as possible.  And let’s face it, not all the Christmas events we have enjoyed in the past are all that safe given COVID-19.

But luckily, there is one event in the Los Angeles area that is not only fun and in the holiday spirit, but it is also safe.  And that event is the Night of Lights!

The Night of Lights is an event coming to the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California.  It is presented by Winter Fest OC.  The event starts on Friday, November 26, and runs through January 2, 2021.  It takes place from Wednesday to Sunday nights through January 2nd.  It starts at 5:00 PM.  You can get a time slot for up to 9:00 PM on Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday and from 10:00 PM on Friday and Saturday.

So, you may be wondering, what is this event?  and what makes it so safe?  Well, it is a drive-through holiday event.  That means you can enjoy all the holiday festivities from the safety of your car.  And that makes the event so much safer than, say, everyone crowding together indoors.

And it’s a great event, too.  It would be a lot of fun, regardless of COVID-19.
