Join neighbors and friends on Wednesday, December 5thfrom 6:30 to 8:00 pm at City of Hope’s Cooper Auditorium for musical entertainment performed by the talented youth of CSArts-SGV and D.U.S.D. students, plus a visit from Santa himself.  Take a picture with the jolly guy and use the hashtag #deckthehallsduarte on social media!  Traditional Mexican cuisine food trucks will be located in front of the Cooper Auditorium at 1500 Duarte Road. 

The night will conclude briefly outdoors with the lighting of the City’s official holiday tree on by the Mayor and Santa. Should there be more attendees than space in Cooper Auditorium, we will be performing an encore performance at 8:00 pm so that all audience members may have a chance to see this spectacular holiday show! Please prepare for rain by wearing appropriate clothing and shoes.  Umbrellas are a must!
