“See people rocking — Hear people chanting — Feeling hot hot hot”—these classic lyrics from Buster Poindexter’s tune capture the spirit of one of Solvang’s “hottest” events of the year! If you and your family want to experience it, then be sure to attend the FREE annual Solvang Christmas Tree Burn in the fields at Old Mission Santa Ines, 1760 Mission Drive in downtown Solvang from 5:00-7:00 p.m. this Friday, January 8, 2016. This popular annual event is coordinated by the Solvang Parks & Recreation Department and fully supervised by the Santa Barbara County Fire Department. It’s one of the largest fire safety demonstrations and community gatherings on California’s Central Coast. There will be free, live entertainment as well as refreshments for purchase.
All area residents are invited to bring their tree (stands & ornaments must be removed) to the big burn pile between now and 5:00 p.m. on January 8, 2016. Join together to see this powerful spectacle ignite the New Year and herald the end of Solvang’s annual Julefest Celebration.
