Southern California’s no winter wonderland, but the holidays are coming tree-by-tree to Newport Beach.

As cancellations of Newport Beach holiday traditions abound this year due to the pandemic, the Sherman Library & Gardens brought in a 20-foot tree for the holidays on Monday ahead of its Nights of 1,000 Lights this December. This is the largest tree at the gardens.

The Nights of 1,000 Lights kicks off Dec. 10. For more information on the event, visit thesherman.org.

The Crystal Cove Conservancy announced this week that what would have been the 24th annual tree lighting and holiday bazaar has been canceled.
