The Holiday of Lights at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Racetrack has become a favorite holiday tradition for Southern California families.

The pace is swift, and the performers are pushed to the peak of their abilities as they attempt to juggle character, plot and staging all at once. An UnScripted Carol is a holiday treat that is never, ever the same story twice and gives fans of A Christmas Carol a whole new way to celebrate the season.
