*New* Snowfall Experience

The concert will also mark the beginning of the new nightly snowfall experience at Citadel Outlets. With the World’s Tallest Live-Cut Tree in the background, guests can experience the wonder of falling snow during a dazzling light show every night through Dec. 30 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. The experience will be paired with festive holiday tunes such as “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” “Carol of the Bells” and “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year.”



The World’s Tallest Live-Cut Tree



On a mission to offer a larger-than-life holiday experience, Citadel Outlets will once again be home to the World’s Tallest Live-Cut Christmas Tree. The 115-foot-tall white fir tree comes from a forest manicuring process in northern California and will be decorated with more than 18,000 multi-colored, energy-efficient LED lights and 10,000 large spheres, bell, and swirl ornaments. The tree will be on display until Dec. 31.

This year, Citadel Outlets will share its magic with the center’s sister property, Outlets at San Clemente, who will boast a Christmas tree of identical size to the one in Commerce.



Holiday Bow on the Castle



In addition to the World’s Tallest Live-Cut Tree, Citadel Outlets will also be adorned with a giant red holiday bow, measured 36 feet wide by 21 feet tall. Comprised of 18 loops and two 75-feet-long tails draping down the castle wall, the magnificent bow and its ribbons will be decorated in Christmas lights and a half-ton of glitter, gracefully lighting up the L.A. skyline through the end of the year.

Conveniently located off the I-5 freeway, 10 minutes from Downtown L.A. and within 25 minutes of Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Orange County, Citadel Outlets is centrally located and easily accessible to both visitors and locals.
