Happy Post Thanksgiving Huntington Beach

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I can't believe we are full on in to the holiday season….
So, what do we have on the agenda for the rest of this week? I'm glad you asked, here are some highlights (hopefully I didn't leave out any pertinent info this time!):

Wednesday, 5:30 - 7:30pm is the Toys for Joy Holiday Mixer at Old World Festival Hall (7561 Center Ave). This is hosted by the Sand Dollars (formerly the Women of Action) and the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce. The admission is an unwrapped toy appropriate for a child 3-15 and includes buffet, raffle prizes, entertainment. There will also be a gift auction. Proceeds to benefit Project Self-Sufficiency, the Huntington Beach Therapeutic Riding Center and Alzheimer's Family Services Center

This weekend, Friday, Saturday & Sunday is the highly anticipated Grand Opening Extravaganza for Endless Food & Fun at 7227 Edinger Ave. $40 a person on any of those days will get you an all day unlimited pass including and endless buffet, arcade, lazer tag, entertainment and more!!

This weekend is downtowns official kick off for the holiday season with Saturday being the “Miracle on Main Street” Tree Lighting Ceremony on the 200 block of Main, from 5-6:30pm. There will be musical entertainment, free hot chocolate, cookies, popcorn & candy canes for all, as well as the arrival of Santa Claus!

On Sunday, the HB Youth Shelter is hosting the annual Light a Light of Love at the Pier. This event is the largest fundraiser for the shelter. Come out and show some support. It's a day full of holiday festivities starting at The Strand (about 1pm), beginning with a Holiday Bazaar and Holiday Dog Costume Contest. Other activities include a Children's Holiday Parade which will be on at Main Street (4:30pm), Surf City Santa photo ops at Pier Plaza, performances by Beach City Big Band, local High School Groups and bands (throughout day/evening), followed by the finale of the Pier and Main Street Snowflake Lighting (6pm). Businesses will offer special discounts and sales on from 3:00 to 7:00 pm - a percentage of proceeds will be donated to the Youth Shelter. For more information contact the CSP Youth Shelter at 714.842.6608.

Lastly, speaking of shelters, our own animal shelter on Newland (just north of PCH) is in desperate need of some holiday love for the dogs with these cold nights they have been having. Their wish list includes space heaters and bedding. Please consider dropping by something to help out these cold dogs. I just dropped off several blankets and beach towels that I no longer needed. The heaters are REALLY needed. Another idea - adopt a dog or cat to take home to share your life! Thank you for keeping these poor souls in your hearts - my two adopted dogs have provided more love than I could have imagined
