November 9, 2012 (Santee) Despite a surplus of winter sunshine rather than snow, the city of Santee has found the formula to making the season feel like an old-fashioned movie, at least for one evening.

Families are invited to experience this magic by attending the City of Santee and Waste Management Holiday Lighting Ceremony at Santee Trolley Square from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16. The free event, which offers activities for people of all ages, is a festival that celebrates the start of the holiday season.
