The Holiday Open House is your downtown local restaurants', retail stores' and businesses' way of saying thank you to our customers and community for their support and patronage throughout the year. Come celebrate our annual Holiday Open House together with the City of Manhattan Beach Pier Lighting Ceremony. Downtown merchants will be open until 9:00 PM and are sure to offer some distinctive gifts and intriguing offers this holiday season. Our restaurants will be serving their original menus and some sampling is sure to get your palette started for an evening of wonderful food. Be sure to check out the solar powered Festival of Lights and the 12 foot living tree in the Metlox Plaza. Please note: The Living Trees on the pier will be up for one week from November 14th to November 20th. Special thanks to Brett Zebrowski, owner of Palm Realty for sponsoring the trees.
