Fashion Island Christmas Tree Lighting 2014
This year, Fashion Island’s annual tree lighting ceremony will take place on November 14 and 15, 2014 at 6:00 pm.
In addition to having the opportunity to watch this beautiful tree light up, there will be sing alongs. And, Mickey will bring his friends as well as a magical, Disney-type snowfall to accompany the lighting.
Make sure to arrive early as parking is difficult.
If you miss the initial tree lighting ceremony at Fashion Island, you can still stop by to see the slightly less festive though still beautiful lighting of the tree each evening at 5pm until January 4, 2015.

“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.” John Muir As your guests arrive to the celebration through your private, terraced courtyard, they admire the unique, leaded glass door inspired by the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright. Walking through the double doors, the open floor plan allows for views from many vantage points. Ascending to the spacious living room, the vaulted ceilings draw them forward. Each guest will be in awe of the natural beauty just outside each window. Balconies, patios and dining areas abound with conversation. The wood toned kitchen invites warm embraces as the hub of the modern home. Once your guests have retired, you can relax in the garden tub of your master bath with a glass of wine. Soon after, you will drift off to sleep, secure in the knowledge that you will awake to the chirping of birds and the wind rustling through the leaves outside your bedroom’s patio doors.
