On Friday, December 4th, 2020, at 6:00 p.m., The Villages of San Luis Obispo will be instantly transformed by a dazzling display of holiday lights. Intentionally designed to be enjoyed as a drive-through event, the press is invited to attend this socially-distanced, Covid-safe event at 55 Broad Street in San Luis Obispo. A longstanding local retirement community, The Villages includes Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care.
“In the year of Covid-19, we wanted to do something to take the place of our annual holiday open house,” said Villages Vice President of Operations, Lisa Hulse. “At a time when inside gatherings are not safe, we wanted our residents and their families to see and feel the joy of the season just the same.”
Between 6 and 7 p.m., Villages residents will enjoy refreshments from an outdoor Hot Cocoa and Spiked Eggnog bar, while Dickens’ carolers from A Wish Your Heart Makes entertain. Saint Nick has promised to make a special appearance, too.
The Light Up The Villages lights display will remain in place all month, from December 4th to January 6th and the public is invited to drive through it any night after dark until 9 p.m.
