The Grove is gearing up for a big shopping season. The arrival of a 100-foot-tall Christmas tree at the end of October marked the beginning of the shopping center's 10th annual holiday celebrations, which get an official kick off this Sunday, November 11th. It's on that date that The Grove will light its tree with a huge party involving balladeer and Jack Sparrow imitator Michael Bolton.
The holiday show will begin at 7:30pm and will feature a "snowfall" and the sounds of Bolton plus Melanie Fiona, Colbie Caillat, DJ JibbJock, Scotty McCreery, Rickey Minor and His Band and Phillip Phillips. Santa will also make an appearance; Mario Lopez and his dimples will emcee. The ceremony will conclude with fireworks.
