The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will once again brighten up the Coachella Valley sky when they flip the switch this weekend on their giant Christmas tree.
This year's celebrity tree lighter is singer and actor James Darren of Gidget and T.J. Hooker fame (along with his extensive resume).
"The festivities begin at the Mountain Station at 5:30pm with the Palm Springs High School Choir singing a selection of holiday songs," Tram Spokeswoman Lena Zimmerschied said.
Normal tram hours and prices apply-- first tram up at 8 a.m., last tram down at 9:45 p.m.
Once the tree is lit, carols will be sung by choirs from throughout the Inland Empire at 5pm and 7pm at the Mountain Station on the following dates:
- December 7 – Twenty-Nine Palms High School
What's more, Santa will visit on Saturday, December 15, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m..
