Every year, on the first Friday night in December, all the merchants along Montana Avenue in Santa Monica open their stores after dark and offer various holiday festivities including music, food, drinks and entertainment.
Designed to kick-start the holiday season, Night on Montana is a neighborhood tradition and something community members look forward to. All the locals are out and about stopping to greet a neighbor, admiring the beautifully decorated stores and grabbing a hot cider and holiday cookie.
- For the Foodies, many shops including Valen Dolce, Mrs Beasley and Sweet Lady Jane will be open late and some will be offering delectable samples of their signature holiday treats. Gruning Eye Care will offer samples of his award-winning chili.
- For the shoppers, many of the stores have great sales. Aura Boutique is offering a Trunk Show by a top designer and the entire store is on sale.
- And, of course, do not miss the opportunity to take a picture with Santa at Pence Hathorn and Silver.
This year PHS will be in a new location, so come check out our new Partners Trust office next to the movie theater. To check out pictures of the events, be sure to check out the PHS Facebook page after tonight. Many wonderful treats await, so come on down and enjoy the start of the Holiday Season.
