5:30 p.m. The Outlets at San Clemente is looking to celebrate the season of joy together. The local shopping center will be implementing social distancing and added safety measures this year as it lights what is being promoted as the “World’s Tallest Tree”—a 125-foot white fir from Mt. Shasta—so the community can still enjoy all the festivities of the annual event. The tree lighting will feature a performance from the Orange County School of the Arts, an appearance from “Santa,” a magical snowfall and other holiday fun. There’s more than one way to enjoy Tree Lighting this year. Come in-person for a free social-distanced experience or go to the Drive-In Theatre to watch the Tree Lighting live and then watch the film Elf from the comfort of a car.
