Holiday Festivities For Everyone At JW Marriott LA


Holiday Festivities For Everyone At JW Marriott LA

There may not be snow covered trees, or below zero temperatures in Los Angeles, but L.A.  is known for elaborate holiday events, sparkling lights, festive tree lightings, boat parades and more! And this year the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE, is getting in the spirit of the season with a complete holiday takeover in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

When and What?
