Light Up the Holidays Event

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and there is no better place to get in the holiday spirit than Grossmont Center! Come celebrate the season as we light up the Center’s giant holiday free, plus enjoy a live musical performance by We Are One. Celebrate the season at our FREE Light Up the Holidays event that has become a beloved tradition for the La Mesa Community. This year, it takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. on November 30, 2019.

Fun for All at Light Up the Holidays

The event starts in a blaze of glory with the lighting of the Center’s giant holiday tree at 4 p.m. The majestic tree, bedecked in thousands of twinkly lights, is a brilliant symbol of the holidays that will shine brightly for shoppers throughout the 2019 holiday season. Light Up the Holidays also features live music to create a wonderfully festive atmosphere. While you are here for the event, make sure to visit all of our terrific stores to get a jump on your holiday shopping—local schools will even provide gift-wrapping services for a donation to fund their programs. It will be a joyous celebration for all!
