Christmas in Old Town Temecula
Old Town Temecula becomes a winter fantasy from the evening Santa Arrives by horse-drawn carriage, until the Great Temecula Grape Drop on New Year's Eve. Snowbell Rockin' Nights at Temecula's Civic Center provides a Southern California snowfall, accompanied by a musical light show. Witness the beauty of more than 20,000 twinkling lights, a seasonal ice rink, and the magic of the season. Weekends include carolers and other family-oriented entertainment.
