Christmas at The Grove with Seth McFarland
Join The Grove for their most spectacular Christmas event yet! On Saturday, November 14, this unique urban mall and park will ring in the 2015 holiday season with The Grove Christmas with Seth MacFarlane. Presented by Citi, the event will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will include MacFarlane singing some of the holiday’s most cherished songs backed by a vibrant 70-piece orchestra. Special guests Meghan Trainor and Katharine McPhee will join him. Plus, experience the annual lighting of The Grove’s 100-foot Christmas tree (the tallest in the country outside of the tree in Rockefeller Plaza, New York), a performance by The Top Hat dancers, the season’s first snowfall, the arrival of Santa Claus himself and a fantastic fireworks finale! A pre-show will begin at 7 p.m. For those new to LA, The Grove is hugely popular outdoor shopping center near Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, where shops, restaurants and a movie multiplex surround a large outdoor lawn and fountain area, which is where the McFarland concert will take place. The Grove is also adjacent to LA's Original Farmers Market, a permanent venue dating back to 1934, with vendors selling cuisine from all over the world, as well as unique gift shops. The Grove and the Farmers Market are connected by an old fashioned double-decker trolly offering free rides. During the Christmas season, The Grove is festooned with elaborate decorations, including simulated snow that falls at regular intervals at night, a huge Christmas tree, a Santa's House (with a real Santa Claus) and hundreds of twinkling ornaments. Even if you cannot attend the concert on the 14th, a trip to The Grove this season is worth the visit!
