Get your fill of holiday fun in the quaint town of Morro Bay, CA.
Crab Pot Holiday Trees will set the mood and the inaugural Winterfest will deliver a dozen days of merriment from December 1 to 12.
Well-known for its signature 576-foot tall volcanic rock that sits majestically between the Pacific Ocean and the tranquil bay, MorroBay is a busy seaside village. If you need a getaway from the day-to-day stresses that zap your energy and holiday spirit, Morro Bay is a must-see waterfront city in San Luis Obispo County, California. Holiday shopping, outdoor adventurers, and boating enthusiasts will find this community friendly and enchanting.
Explorers find history abounds in the tall ships, as they watch three different parades of lighted boats gliding through the harbor along the Embarcadero. Visit Santa’s House, participate in the Santa Crawl for folks 21 years and older. Frolic in the snow. Kids should check out the FREE stuff they’ll receive throughout November and December.
What’s a Crab Pot Christmas Tree?
They are trees constructed with durable, weatherproof PVC coated Crab Trap Wire. Morro Bay craftsmen build their first crab pot holiday tree from local buoys, crab pots and fishing gear last year in Tidelands Park on the Embarcadero.
It was such a hit, this year the city will again light its homemade creation in honor of the local fishing community, and decided to import and additional 14 crab pot trees from a Coastal North Carolina crab trap maker and place them all over town. ~ Jennifer Little, Morro Day tourism manager
According to Little, “Our fishing community works so hard throughout the year. This is such a great way to celebrate our maritime heritage at the holidays.”
The Central Coast Fisheries for Women coordinated the entire event to highlight the extraordinary local seafood and fishing families of Morro Bay.
