This year, Los Angeles is offering some events throughout the city to get you and your family ready for the holiday season. Universal Studios Hollywood has decorated the whole park in the theme of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for Grinchmas. You can see the classic holiday performance of the Nutcracker Ballet, the LA Zoo is offering a fun Reindeer Romp and there is even an outdoor ice skating rink in downtown. With all of these holiday events in Los Angeles, you’ll be sure to find something that everyone will enjoy.
When you go to Grinchmas at Universal Studios, be prepared for the beautiful Christmas tree lighting ceremony that happens each night. There is even a short 15-minute performance where a guest celebrity comes and narrates Dr. Seuss’ classic story, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” There will also be the opportunity to take pictures with the Grinch and his trusty dog Max.
On December 13 and 14, the Dolby Theatre will be hosting the Los Angeles Ballet as they perform the beloved Nutcracker Ballet. If you can’t make this performance, the LA Ballet Company will also be playing on December 20 and the 21 at the Royce Hall in the University of California Los Angeles.
