The city of Murrieta is prepared to kick off the holiday season with a slew of free, family-friendly events designed to make even the stingiest of Scrooges leave the “bah humbug” at home.
Space at the event is limited to the first 500 people, so RSVPs are required and can be made online at tinyurl.com/Morning-Donuts-with-Santa. For some added fun, come dressed in pajamas to enjoy doughnuts and beverages with the jolly old elf himself.
The city is asking those in attendance to bring a non-perishable food item or new toys for its annual Food and Toy Drive. Donuts with Santa is sponsored in part by The Winfield Group Real Estate Team and Dunkin’ Donuts.
The parade route begins at the intersection of B Street and Washington Avenue and will end at Town Square Park.
Immediately following the parade, at Murrieta’s Town Square Park for the annual Festival of Trees where Santa Claus and his friends will magically light the city’s Christmas tree during a tree lighting ceremony.
Photos with Santa, carriage rides and a magic show are all on tap for the Festival of Trees, making this one event residents don’t want to miss.
