Menifee officials Monday announced a series of events the city will host during the upcoming holiday season.

Festivities will start on Saturday, Dec. 4, with the annual Christmas tree lightning ceremony at Mt. San Jacinto College, located at 28237 La Piedra Rd., from 4 to 8 p.m.. The event is free to the public and will include games, crafts for kids and snow for sliding, according to officials.

The city will be teaming up with the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard and Menifee Police Department to collect food and gift donations for local families in need at the event.

Festivities will continue with Menifee’s Xtream Light Fight holiday house decorating contest. From Nov. 29 through Dec. 13, residents are invited to decorate their homes and submit them online for public viewing and voting. The public will vote for the winners who will be announced on Dec. 20 on the city’s website.

Finally, the annual Breakfast with Santa event is planned for Dec. 11 at the Kay Ceniceros Senior Center, located at 29995 Evans Rd. Residents will get the chance to take pictures with the big man himself and participate in activities. The price per person is $10, and anyone over the age of 2 is required to register beforehand.

“The holiday season is a great time to come out and celebrate with one another,” said Community Services Director Jonathan Nicks. “We are happy to bring back these events and bring joy to the Menifee community.”
