    Candy Cane Lane Coming to Woodland Hills all month long in December.

    This section of Woodland Hills goes all out for Christmas, and as a result, a community has sprung up. Every year the residents in this area decorate their house with thousands of bulbs and tons of displays.

In the past, attendance meant you might see a celebrity or two, enjoy the holiday, see roving vendors, could purchase fair/parade-like toys, and Residents even got into the act selling hot cocoa and coffee. It’s hard to say if this will be the same with COVID-19.

    This isn’t a formal event, but I am sure the residents would prefer that the visitors stay in their vehicles.
