THE TOP 6 CHRISTMAS THINGS TO DO IN FULLERTON

How can you best savor the Fullerton, Orange County Christmas atmosphere?


OK, so maybe Fullerton doesn’t get covered in snow at Christmas (so you won’t see that kind of a White Christmas) but that doesn’t mean Christmas in Fullerton is anything short of merry and, well, Christmassy.

Every year, Fullertonians get together and organize events for the holiday season of all kinds, shapes and sizes, making the Christmas spirit stronger than ever.

From Christmas markets to stage performances to parties and festivals, there is no shortage of Christmas festivities in our corner of Orange County.

To help you plan your Fullerton Christmas, here is Fox in a Box’s official list of the top 6 Christmas events in Fullerton.

Bunny the Elf LIVE! – STAGEStheatre

Christi Pedigo (Kelsey) was working as a Christmas elf in New York when she got the idea for a performance about a girl with a passion for music and theatre who is forced to give up her dreams and take up a job as a Christmas elf in a store.

Christi has been described as a ‘talented, versatile actress and writer’ who delivers a ‘pitch-perfect performance’ throughout the performance.

And it’s already a hit on YouTube and was sold out at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
