Winterlit

Winterlit

Every year Santa Monica hosts a series of holiday events and activities that light up Downtown, bringing a festive holiday spirit to this idyllic seaside city. In fact, we’ve managed to engineer some true holiday magic, turning a busy urban corner into a magical winter wonderland with the annual ICE at Santa Monica skating rink, open November 1, 2014 through January 19, 2015.

This year, Winterlit takes over the corner of Wilshire Boulevard at Third Street Promenade. Every Thursday evening, beginning at 6 p.m. November 20th, Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. is going to make it snow! There will be free activities as well, including karoake, kids' crafts, a holiday movie screening and more
