This year Paseo Nuevo will shine bright as the star of downtown Santa
Barbara's holiday happenings. New and exclusive events will kick off on
Black Friday, November 27 and continue to delight visitors and families
through Christmas Eve. Here's the lineup of this season's not-to-miss
BLACK FRIDAY - The official start to the holiday gift buying season, Black
Friday on November 27 will launch all things holiday! We're getting an
early start with a 7am opening, although many retailers will open even
earlier with Macy's taking the lead and opening at 6pm on Thanksgiving.
Don't worry there will still be plenty of deals to be had on Black Friday.
For a full list of retailers who are opening earlier than 7am, visit
LET IT SNOW - Exclusively at Paseo Nuevo, the much anticipated nightly
snowfall will take place twice each evening in Center Court as a flurry of
white snow falls down on the big tree, singing carolers, shoppers and
families. This magical experience will delight children and turn adults into
kids again. Snow shows will take place Monday through Saturday at 7pm and
8pm and on Sundays at 5pm and 6pm starting on Friday, November 27. Be
prepared to singalong to classic wintery songs and enjoy the ‘best in snow'!
VISIT SANTA - This year Paseo Nuevo was able to get on Santa's busy
schedule! Now, children will be able to visit him each day in Center Court
from November 27 through December 24. Every child receives a free gift from
Santa and Santa's elves will be on hand to catch the perfect precious moment
in a photo. Photo packages start at just $22 plus digital downloads are
instantly available via text message.
LIVE ENTERTAINMENT - It wouldn't be the holidays without costumed carolers,
holiday horns, colossal choirs and the occasional squeezebox roaming
throughout the center filling the paseos with holiday joy! A robust
schedule of over 20 live entertainment ensembles will perform throughout the
season nearly every day. For the full schedule of performers, dates and
times, visit http://paseonuevoshopping.com/events/live-holiday-entertainment
GIFT WRAPPING - The dreaded task of wrapping all your gifts has now become
charitable! Stop by the LifeChronicles Gift Wrapping Station near Center
Court and for a minimum donation you can have all your gifts wrapped by
their community volunteers. LifeChronicles is a local non-profit whose
mission is to help families heal and connect by videotaping the life stories
of an elderly family member or a seriously ill loved one. Your donation
will help defray costs and expand their services.
#PaseoNuevoMagic - This will truly be a magical season and now guests can
Snap, Share and Tag their holiday experience @ShopPaseoNuevo on Facebook,
Instagram and Twitter for a chance to WIN gifts and gift cards valued up to
$50 each! New winners will be chosen each week starting November 27.
