Downtown goes small-town for the night

Santa arrived and skaters tested their skills on a synthetic rink during Laguna Beach's annual Hospitality Night on Dec. 6.

With a giant pepper tree in front of City Hall adorned with white lights, attendees listened to performances from the Thurston Middle School band and Anneliese School choir. The annual event was co-sponsored by the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce and the city.

Crews set up a synthetic rink in the parking lot of U.S. Bank, at 310 Glenneyre St., according to a chamber news release.

Merchants opened their businesses for shoppers, and moviegoers could watch the seasonal classic "It's a Wonderful Life" inside the South Coast Movie Theater.
