The public is invited to the festive lighting ceremony, which will include carolers, coffee, cocoa and snacks on Dec. 14 at 6 p.m. The free community event will take place at Shell Beach just above the lifeguard tower.
Lifeguards are also collecting toys for Toys for Tots and are asking guests to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the cause. Toys can be donated at the lighting ceremony or at any lifeguard tower along San Diego’s coastline. For more information, contact Ed Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
