30th Annual Manhattan Beach Pier Lighting and Holiday Kickoff

There’s no place like home for the holidays.  Especially if home is in the South Bay!  On of the events that really seems to kick off the holiday season in the South Bay is the pier lighting ceremony in Manhattan Beach.  The lighting is just the reason to have an event but the evening is filled with activities and community spirit and is a great way to bump into friends and family.  It’s not only a fun event but the green lights on the roundhouse at the end of the pier in the shape of a tree is a pretty iconic image for those of us fortunate enough to live in the area.
