Bells were jingling at The Pike Outlets in Long Beach on Friday night, as nearly 100 people gathered to see holiday carolers, Santa Claus and the official lighting of a 30-foot holiday tree at the downtown shopping center.
Festivities began at 6:00PM on Friday, November 20, and featured a magic show, the aforementioned holiday carolers, hot cider and a small train carrying kids around the outlets. Santa also made an appearance, helping light up the holiday tree and offering his lap and lending his ear to find out what children wanted for Christmas.
