Candy Cane Lane

Note that Candy Cane Lane is not planning a holiday display in 2020.
The eastern block of Acacia Avenue is announced by a Candy Cane Lane sign, marking a tradition of more than 60 years. Houses are alight with trains, reindeer, giant characters, and music, plus frequent appearances by Santa Claus in a covered sleigh at the end of the cul-de-sac.

The lights go on at 6pm; Santa usually sits down in his sleigh at about 7pm. El Segundo Concert Band plays at 6:30pm on opening night. Local surf band Lawndale also plays opening night this year.

Opening night is a big celebration each year, after which the cul-de-sac is lit up for pedestrians every night through December 23rd.

Candy Cane Lane itself is closed to cars, but parking is available throughout the neighborhood.
