SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

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.
