Night of Lights

Night of Lights is a free annual old fashioned holiday event hosted in downtown Half Moon Bay on the first Friday in December.

Visit downtown Half Moon Bay during Night of Lights and find the trees decorated in dazzling lights and many stores will stay open late for you to do some holiday shopping in the unique coastal shops.

The event generally features a tree lighting ceremony in Mac Dutra Plaza, a Parade of Lights down Main Street, carolers and musical entertainment, roasted chestnuts and activities for the kids.

The 2017 Night of Lights is scheduled for Friday, December 1 from 6-9pm. Download our 2017 flyer for a full schedule and map.
