The Lighting of the Bay at Newport Dunes Resort in California.

Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort will once again host one of Southern California’s most cherished holiday spectacles. Santa will flip a switch to illuminate 50 electric Christmas trees situated on the bay at the annual Lighting of the Bay ceremony on Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. The free event, which has been a tradition for two decades, is expected to exceed 500 guests, according to a news release.

Festivities will include live musical performances, Christmas carol sing-a-long and, for a small price, seafood chowder and hot chocolate from the award-winning Back Bay Bistro.
