Queen Mary is closed and now owned by the city of Long Beach. Plans have not been announced.
After a six-year run with Chill, the Queen Mary has moved its annual holiday on board the grand ship and renamed it a Queen Mary Christmas. Replacing the ice-themed Chill held outside the ship, the new “Queen Mary Christmas” will take place on the decks and inside the historic ship.
Visitors will feel as though they were transported back to a voyage aboard the Queen. Attractions will include an 80-foot Christmas tree, a huge ice-rink on the top deck, a Gingerbread Village, roaming carolers, a Christmas tree-lined Promenade Deck, a 4 D screening of The Polar Express, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and a Canopy of thousands of twinkling lights.
Los Angeles Arboretum and Botanic Garden invite you to Moonlight Forest, an unforgettable evening experience of art, culture, and discovery. Masterfully crafted lanterns beckon you into the gardens.
Descanso Gardens holiday evening event where visitors can interact with amazing light displays. Featuring a one-mile walk through unique lighting experiences in several areas of Descanso Gardens. Parking is free and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Evening skies blaze with color and light at the Fairplex in Pomona during the Magical Chinese Lantern Festival. This all-ages experience features over 1,000 hand-crafted lanterns.
