Last night (Saturday, December 3, 2017) Arcadia kicked off the Christmas season with the celebration of Christmas Tree Lane hosted by the Arcadia Elks Lodge. It was a grand evening featuring live music, two bar locations, an interactive kid’s corner with Santa and a variety of impressive Christmas Trees up for raffle. The main feature, the Christmas Trees, caught the eye of all those who attended. All Christmas trees were donated by generous local Arcadia residents and decorated with various themed prizes that raised the value of all trees to above $500, with some worth $5,000. Eager participants bought and placed their raffle tickets in boxes hoping to take home an early tree for their homes, and with all proceeds going to benefit local charities.
