Christmas lights in Torrance
Christmas lights lane near the beach is definitely an ideal spot to check out during the holidays. Whether you’re going on a date or hanging out with your own family, you’re going to have a great experience regardless. Btw the Sleepy Hollow is perfect to combine with the Point Vicente Lighthouse sunset experience & a quick tour of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center.
The decorated street is definitely a place to take your toddler to for some impressive memories. I know we had a blast checking out mind blowing themed decorations. The scenes varied from classic religious themes (supposedly that’s what the Christmas was about) to variety of modern day scenes from popular shows and movies.
Candy lane lights with kids
The Jack Skellington was probably one of our favorite most decorations since it is pretty intimidating, I wonder if they take the same decoration out for Haloween? =)
We highly recommend going to the Torrance candy cane lane with your kids. It’s a free spectacular light show where you can enjoy a Christmas evening with your entire family while sipping on some hot chocolate and munching cookies. Also, check out the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, which annually occurs on January 1st.
Let’s head on out to the South Bay.
Be courteous to Torrance candy cane lane residents.
Despite the cheery holiday spirit, don’t forget to be respectful of the residents and their neighbors. The influx of all the tourists creates traffic congestion and pretty real emergency situations, since the viewing is not really regulated. Check out this article for details regarding the visiting.
Last holiday season, for example, traffic congestion from visitors soaking in the light displays on peak nights was so bad that the Fire Department conceded to residents that its paramedics couldn’t respond to emergencies on time.
Check out these very important rules before making havoc at the Candy Lane. They began Friday, Nov. 27, and include:
A new permanent stop sign at Robert Road and Doris Way, and temporarily using police to control traffic at peak times at the intersection;
No parking or stopping on one side of streets to allow for emergency access;
Stationary vending is banned;
Roaming vendors must now use sidewalks wider than six feet, which are few and far between in the neighborhood;
Residents and nonprofit groups selling goods must get the required county and city permits, which can cost more than $200;
Five vehicle counters are now installed so city officials can get a more accurate count of visitor numbers; and
20 new trash cans have popped up on streets.
When does candy cane lane Torrance start ?
Located on Roberts Rd. off Pacific Cost Highway. SHCLE is on display from 6-10 p.m. every night starting December 1st until the evening of New Year’s Day.
Here’s a great tip from South Bay Events
Skip the traffic by parking on Pacific Coast Highway, Calle Mayor or Prospect, and walk to Roberts Road, just west of Calle Mayor. If you want to take photos, a walking tour is a must. There is always a diverse array of themes on display from military, Christian, Jewish, Spongebob, Chicago Cubs, etc. so you’re bound to find something you like.
You will definitely have a fantastic time admiring the Christmas decorations in South Bay. Also,
