Stearns Wharf Tree Lighting Ceremony
Join us on Stearns Wharf, December 10th to kick off the holiday season!
At the conclusion of the Parade of Lights event, just before the fireworks launch, the Honorable Mayor Helene Schneider will turn on the lights of a beautiful 25-foot Green White Fir to officially open the holiday season for the Waterfront.
The 32st Annual Parade of Lights starts at 5:30 p.m. with some 30 boats motoring, sailing, and paddling the Santa Barbara Coastline. Judging for the parade takes place from the east side of Stearns Wharf. Take advantage of the opportunity to start your holiday season by having dinner, a treat, or do some holiday shopping for your family and friends. Gift ertificates are available at Wharf businesses.
Parking is available on Stearns Wharf (if parked prior to 3:30 p.m.) as well as at the Chase Palm Park & Garden Street parking lots. The first 90-minutes of parking on the wharf is free!
