MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — The spirit of the season has come alive in downtown Manhattan Beach where you can now check out some store and club windows decorated especially for the holidays. And, even if you don't get downtown to see the windows firsthand [though you really should], you can see photos of each participating establishment and vote online through Saturday, Nov. 21.
The contest, held by the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business + Professional Association, is typically part of the annual Holiday Open House held downtown one Thursday evening prior to Thanksgiving. The event, which closes down the roads in downtown MB to through traffic, spans several hours and includes the lighting of the Manhattan Beach Pier, living Christmas trees on the pier, plenty of live musicians and carolers, decorated store windows, sales, food, fun, photos with Santa on his sleigh led by Rudolph, and more.
Due to COVID-19, the Thursday night open house was canceled, however, the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business + Professional Association reorganized and hosted the 26th Annual Holiday Open House over two days this past weekend from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
