Snowflakes light up for love’s sake in Huntington Beach
Giant snowflakes on the Huntington Beach Pier got people in the holiday spirit Sunday night, during the annual Light a Light of Love ceremony.
At 6 p.m., after a countdown by Mayor Barbara Delgleize and a drum roll by the Marina High band, more than 80 snowflakes were simultaneously lit on the pier and Main Street.
Light a Light of Love raises funds for Waymakers Huntington Beach Youth Shelter, a 12-bed emergency crisis intervention refuge for homeless, runaway, abused and at-risk youth ages 11 to 17. Each of the 6-foot-tall snowflakes features a plaque below that can feature a saying or company logo.
The event featured preshow entertainment by Beach Boys tribute band “Surf’s Up,” as well as a craft booth, the annual children’s holiday parade and photo opportunities with Santa Claus.
This year marked the 26th year of the annual event.
