Here are 7 things you need to know before heading to The Grove Christmas with Seth MacFarlane:
1) Arrive early to beat the crowds.
If you plan on attending, arrive a few hours early. Many guests start arriving as early as 4:30 pm.
2) Ridesharing is the way to go.
Parking will fill up very quickly. Consider carpooling or taking an Uber to and from the event.
3) Stores will close at 4pm.
Many stores and Pacific Theatres will close at 4pm on Sunday. Our restaurants will remain open throughout the night and Pacific Theatres will reopen at 10pm.
4 ) Follow The Grove on Snapchat.
Our Snapchat will go behind the scenes all night long to give you an exclusive peek backstage and on the red carpet. Follow us on Snapchat @thegrovela.
5) You can watch anywhere on property.
If you can’t get close to the stage, don’t worry: large viewing monitors will be set up across the property, including near Nordstrom, Nike and our Santa House, showing a live stream of the event.
6) Come for a late lunch; stay for the show.
To secure the best spot on property, get to The Grove as early as possible and enjoy a bite at one of our many dining destinations. Reservations are required.
7) Unable to make it to The Grove?
Visit The Americana at Brand on November 17 for its annual tree lighting ceremony, featuring joyous music from around the world, the arrival of Santa, and a grand fireworks finale. Or you can join us the following night at The Promenade at Westlake for another magical celebration complete with a 65-foot Christmas tree adorned with 5,000 sparkling lights, as well as music, entertainment, fireworks and a visit from Santa.
