Nativity scenes are popping up on Euclid Avenue in Ontario.
The Christmas on Euclid Experience, a tradition since 1958, will be held this year despite COVID-19, according to a statement.
However, because of state restrictions on large gatherings, many of the events associated with the festival – including the craft fair and community sing-a-long – have been canceled. Free virtual events will be held in their place.
Christmas on Euclid is produced by the Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau, with funding provided by businesses and community leaders. Construction includes mural backdrops, lights, and placement of the nearly life-size statues in each of the dozen displays that depict the birth of Christ.
The Nativity scenes will be displayed from Thanksgiving Day thru New Year’s Day on the Euclid Avenue median from C Street to F Street. Families, groups, and individuals are welcome to walk up and down Euclid and enjoy the scenes.
New displays were built last year. Donations can be made at ChristmasOnEuclid.com, or mailed to that organization at 2000 E. Convention Center Way, Ontario Ca. 91764.
