Oh, there's no place like Laguna Beach for the holidays, and Winter Fantasy is just one of the many reasons why ...
Hundreds of visitors watched as city council member Kelly Boyd lit the tall tree at the Sawdust Festival grounds Saturday evening.
Kids ran around and had fun in the playhouse. They got to hold small animals in the petting zoo, and visit Santa himself. Adults strolled the warmly-lit lanes with hot cocoa in hand, checking out all of the delightful crafted items for sale.
