Holiday for Children

One of the most enchanting Holiday destinations in all the world is located right here in Orange County. The historic downtown is lined in brilliantly changing trees, the air is crisp and the Mission's lush gardens are bathed in the soft light of the season. In minutes Orange County residents can be transported into another world to shop and dine in the new West of "Old Capistrano". Here surrounded by Old World Spanish and European Architecture, visitors shop and dine experiencing a truly rare and unspoiled piece of Orange County's history while establishing a holiday tradition of their own.

The launch of San Juan Capistrano's Holiday season is the downtown Christmas Tree Lighting in Heritage Park scheduled this year on December 4, 2004 at 5:00 pm. There is a live Nativity, Santa makes a visit and shops and restaurants have open house greeting strollers with refreshments from warm soup to cookies and pastries. The Mission is open late and is filled with the sounds of the season.

In December (date TBA), at 6:50 the annual Christmas Train will arrive at the Capistrano Depot as children of all ages wait with anticipation and the train decked in lights pulls in to pick up Christmas gifts for children in need.
