Downtown San Diego's Tree Lighting

Holidays on Horton Square will take place Wednesday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m.

It's the time of year to gather 'round the outdoor ice rink for a little holiday cheer with Mickey and Minnie.

NBC 7 hosted its annual holiday tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday, Dec. 3 complete with music, ice skating and the famous faces from Disneyland.

Dozens of families joined us for the live 7:30 p.m. broadcast outside the NBC Building on Broadway near Horton Plaza, hosted by NBC 7's Mark Mullen, Catherine Garcia, Dagmar Midcap, Jim Laslavic and Jodi Kodesh.

Right after the tree was lit, guests were able to skate beneath the stars at the “Fantasy on Ice” rink from 8 to 10 p.m.

Proceeds from Fantasy on Ice benefit the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children's Hospital.

The rink will open Wednesday, Nov. 20 with a special $5 admission to skate all night.

Admission to the ice rink is $14 for adults, $12 for children, $10 for Military and $10 for RCHSD employee.Tickets include ice skate rental. 

There's also a season pass option of $40 to skate until the rink packs up on January 4, 2015.
