    OCEAN BEACH CHRISTMAS TREE: HOLIDAY IN THE SAND!

     

    The annual Ocean Beach Christmas Tree Festival is a tradition that many in the beach community look forward to all year long. A 65' tall star pine tree that a local resident who lives on West Pt. Loma Blvd. donated was placed in the sand at the foot of Newport Ave. on November 27. A police escort made sure the tree arrived safely and "Bob's Crane Service, Hawthorne Rent It service, RD Reed Heavy Transport and Atlas Environmental donated their time and services for the event," according to a story in the U/T San Diego newspaper.

     

    Students at Ocean Beach Elementary School helped with the tree decorations. Before the official 33rd annual Ocean Beach Christmas Parade took place on Saturday, Dec.1st, Santa Claus gave his blessing. The lighting of the Christmas tree ceremony kicks off the OB Christmas Parade.

     

    The Christmas Tree in the sand is a wonderful reminder that holidays can be celebrated in many different ways but still convey the joy and festivity of the yuletide season.
