The holiday season can come and go in a blur. Between friends, family, shopping and everything else that revolves around the holidays, it’s difficult to find the time to actually enjoy them.
Holiday events can be some of the best parts of the holiday season. It’s fun to gather with friends and family for festive celebrations. There are several great events in Costa Mesa between now and Christmas, many of which are free to attend. Get the most out of the season by enjoying some of these festive events in the City of the Arts.
The first annual Maker’s Marketplace at Creative Outlet Studios provided a unique opportunity for guests to shop handmade for the holidays with a curated selection of local artisans, craftspeople and vendors.
This weekend marks the biggest shopping days of the year. Black Friday, a day synonymous with big discounts and even bigger crowds when retailers open their doors before sunrise, is generally regarded as the official beginning of the holiday “shopping season.” More recent trends, like Shop Small Saturday and Cyber Monday, offer shoppers an early opportunity to check-off a good portion of their gift list.
“Black Friday” may sound like a daunting, negative term, but its meaning refers to a positive time for retailers. It is typically the day that stores go from the “red” to the “black” and begin to turn a profit for the year. Shop Small Saturday started in 2010, and unlike Cyber Monday and Black Friday which are both prominent with large retail chains, Shop Small Saturday focuses on unique, local businesses. Whether you’re more inclined to brave swarming crowds on Black Friday or browse local retailers on Shop Small Saturday, (or maybe both) Costa Mesa has the perfect shopping destination for you.
