SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Villages of San Luis Obispo will be instantly transformed by a dazzling display of holiday lights at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5.

A longstanding local retirement community, The Villages includes Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. People can drive-through and view the display at 55 Broad St. in San Luis Obispo.

“In the year of COVID-19, we wanted to do something to take the place of our annual holiday open house,” said Villages Vice President of Operations Lisa Hulse. “At a time when inside gatherings are not safe, we wanted our residents and their families to see and feel the joy of the season just the same.”

The Light Up The Villages lights display will remain in place all month, from Dec. 5 to Jan. 6 and the public is invited to drive through it any night after dark until 9 p.m.
