Bill and Winifred Hart


What better way to usher in the start of the holiday season with thousands of your friends and neighbors than with real snow, festive performances, crafts and pictures with Santa?

All of this and more will be available at the city of Santa Clarita’s yearly holiday celebration and tree lighting ceremony, Light Up Main Street. The City Council invites residents and guests to attend an evening of entertainment and holiday cheer in Old Town Newhall on Saturday, Nov. 16, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Light Up Main Street unofficially opens the holiday season in Santa Clarita and unites residents for an evening of music, activities and more. The City Council is happy to welcome KTLA Morning News co-anchor and Santa Clarita resident Chris Schauble to host the event.

Attendees this year will have the opportunity to play in real snow on Main Street, shop for local and handmade gifts from the small businesses in Old Town Newhall and dine at one of the many restaurants in the area serving up a wide range of delicious dishes. Children will also be able to take a photo with Santa Claus and make free crafts to take home. Food trucks will be on-site selling sweet and savory options for dinner and dessert, as well.

At 7:30 p.m., members of the Santa Clarita City Council will officially illuminate the lights on a 23-foot-tall Christmas tree and overhead displays along Main Street in front of Old Town Newhall Library. Following the tree lighting, attendees will be treated to a free concert by “Midnight Ride,” a party band that plays popular songs from a variety of genres and eras, until 9:00 p.m.

Residents are asked to be mindful of road closures that will be in effect for Light Up Main Street. Lyons Avenue will be closed between Railroad Avenue and Walnut Street and Main Street will be closed between Lyons Avenue and Market Street. Both closures will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at midnight.

Both Walnut Street and Market Street will remain open to through traffic. Detours will be made available to help residents avoid road closures in the area.

Free public parking is available at the City-owned parking structure on 9th Street and Railroad Avenue, as well as at the Newhall Community Center (22421 Market Street) and various lots around Newhall.

The City thanks community partners Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, Re/Max of Santa Clarita, Snow Orthodontics and 33 North Development Group for their support of Light Up Main Street.
