Winterlit: Santa Monicans gathered on the Promenade for the city’s official tree lighting ceremony on Dec. 1. The event included a visit from Santa, performances from local musicians and a sprinkling of artificial “snow.” Visit https://downtownsm.com/winterlit for a list of Downtown holiday events and locals who missed the Downtown tree lighting can still participate in Main Street’s holiday event next weekend.
