Groove Temple Dance Fitness Experience in Ventura - Dec. 15

Dance your holiday stress away and leave feeling blissed out after a Groove Temple sesh in Ventura.

It’s a dance fitness experience like no other—great tunes, learn some new moves, or dance to the beat of your own drummer.

Lots of sweat and smiles, minus the weird creepers.

Holiday Drone Light Show in Solvang - Dec. 21

If drones flying in the night sky putting on a light show doesn’t say “high holiday,” we don’t know what does.
Forget holiday fireworks or the house with 5 million strings of lights. Instead, think drones, lots of them, creating images in the sky of Santa’s sleigh and reindeer, candy canes and a Christmas tree.
Southern California’s only holiday drone show will take place Dec. 21 in the Danish-themed village of Solvang in the Santa Ynez Valley as part of its Julefest (pronounced “Yule-fest”) 2019 celebrations.
