12th Holiday Circle of Lights

December 1 through New Year's Day
Every day from 5–9 p.m.


Enjoy our month-long holiday light exhibition featuring scenes from Santa’s workshop and other holiday-inspired themes

A giant Nutcracker soldier awaits your arrival, then our magical storyland of lights will continue to delight you. Our whimsical display, which begins at the front fountain, features a reindeer sled, and train of toys; snowmen; skaters; candy canes; bells; poinsettias; playful penguins; a carriage scene; a horse and sleigh; and a holiday arch of lights. Hundreds of tiny bright lights outlining our buildings and trees provide the perfect backdrop for this enchanting exhibition. Join us for another Mountain View Cemetery tradition. There is no charge!



12th Annual Holiday Remembrance Tree and Lighting

Sunday, December 2, 3–5 p.m.


Honor someone close to you with a commemorative ornament.


Stop by to decorate our holiday remembrance tree and commemorate family members and friends who are no longer with us. We’ll have a crafts area where you can insert photos or personal notes into clear or colored ornaments. At 5 p.m., a minister will say a special blessing… and then we’ll light our beautiful tree. Enjoy holiday refreshments, listen to festive holiday music, and warm yourself by our crackling fire as you reflect on treasured memories during this special time of year.


If you plan to attend this free event and place an ornament, or if you'd like us to place an ornament for you, please call us at (510) 658-2588 or email doreen@mountainviewcemetery.org. Clear ornaments have space for a photo or note; colored ornaments have space to draw or write a note.
