'Tis the season for candy canes, gingerbread houses and giftwrapping, but it wouldn’t really feel like December without Lake Elsinore Winterfest.
Friday, from 5-9 p.m. on historic Main Street in downtown Lake Elsinore, the holidays will be in full swing during the annual Winterfest celebration that will include a holiday tree lighting and special guest, Santa Claus himself!
Kids of all ages will enjoy real snow, sledding, crafts, entertainment, food, shopping and more.
The city-sponsored event is free. For more information, visit lake-elsinore.org.
