My wife and I went to the "Lights, Cameras. Christmas" show last night at the music pier. It was great, a professional performance!! We think it is a must see for all OC and surrounding communities residents and all children over 7-8 years old. Just lots of FUN!!

It's 1:00 and there's a line of people but no Santa and no carriage rides :( I guess the gray sky is keeping them away.
