The Hermosa Beach Chamber Foundation is the producer of this event. It is a fundraiser and community benefit that supports local businesses.
Are the carnival rides and workshops also for adults?
The local artisan pop-up will be at grade level. Most retailers are at grade level. Some retailers have a step up to get inside the shop. To gain access to those shops, please asks the shop staff for assistance.
Can I bring my dog?
Well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome at Hermosa for the Holidays in all public places. However, dogs will not be allowed on the carnival rides or inflatables.
