The eastern block of Acacia Avenue is announced by a Candy Cane Lane sign, marking a tradition of more than 60 years. Houses are alight with trains, reindeer, giant characters, and music, plus frequent appearances by Santa Claus in a covered sleigh at the end of the cul-de-sac. The lights go on at 6:00pm; Santa usually sits down in his sleigh at about 7:00pm.
Candy Cane Lane itself is closed to cars, but parking is available throughout the neighborhood. The last night of the public display is usually December 23, keeping the street more private for the actual holiday.

“We visited Candy Cane Lane in El Segundo for the first time this year. This neighborhood has been decorating their neighborhood since 1949 with beautiful Christmas lights. Each house has its own theme. The homeowners go all out and it’s an amazing experience! Santa Claus was on hand to visit with the kids in his sleigh. A high school band played Christmas music. You just grab a hot cocoa or hot toddy, walk the streets, and enjoy the sites! It’s really fun and a great holiday tradition to begin!” – Holly C.
