Candy Cane Lane

Candy Cane Lane is a neighborhood in Pacific Grove with a beautiful annual tradition. Starting on Dec. 3, entire blocks are filled with holiday decorations, more than anywhere else in Monterey County. It’s hard to miss the two-story tall nutcrackers, mini ferris wheel and train that circle the center park.

Families walk through overhead glowing tunnels and take pictures with Santa’s sleigh, gingerbread houses and snowmen. Many houses project classic movies such as “Frosty the Snowman” for passersby to stop and watch. Kids are delighted to see Elsa, Charlie Brown and many other well-loved cartoon characters displayed throughout the neighborhood. 

Those who attend the festivities yearly may have missed the famous “Elvis House” where a life size statue with a santa hat is proudly displayed with his very own spotlight and stage. This year he is down for renovations, with a sign in his place that states, “Don’t get all shook up! Elvis will return next year in 2023.” 

If you haven’t already, take a trip to Candy Cane Lane this December and take part in our very own piece of the North Pole. To visit, turn on to Morse Drive or Beaumont Avenue off of Forest Avenue near Pacific Grove High School.
