Travel Channel Names Manhattan Beach SKECHERS Fireworks One Of Top Two Holiday Festivals In The United States

SKECHERS USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX) today announced that the annual SKECHERS-sponsored Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks celebration has been named one of the top two holiday festivals in the nation by the Travel Channel. In a race for the No. 1 holiday celebration, the Travel Channel will film this Sunday's event at the Manhattan Beach Pier for the upcoming special “Christmas Showdown," highlighting festival activities, interviewing prominent members of the community and local families participating in the festivities.

“I was thrilled to hear Manhattan Beach was selected among thousands of cities as one of the top holiday fireworks festivals in the nation,” said SKECHERS president Michael Greenberg. “This annual event means a lot to the SKECHERS family because it unites the community in the spirit of the season. This year, SKECHERS is proud to present not one, but two fireworks shows to celebrate Manhattan Beach’s 100 th birthday. We wanted to do something special to commemorate the centennial celebration, and when viewers across the nation tune in to watch this festival on the Travel Channel, they will be truly amazed by what we’ve created here in Manhattan Beach.”

“When I partnered with several members of the Manhattan Beach community to found the first Holiday Fireworks celebration 23 years ago, we never imagined what it would grow into,” said Pete Moffett of Pete Moffett Productions. “With the support of SKECHERS and the city of Manhattan Beach, this festival now draws more than 15,000 people gathering together on the sand under the stars for a truly special holiday celebration. Manhattan Beach may not have a traditional ‘white Christmas’ like you see in the movies, but that’s what makes our holiday festival so unique – you’ve never seen anything like it.”

"Manhattan Beach's special Centennial fireworks program will be the biggest and brightest show in Manhattan Beach history, so it is wonderful that the Travel Channel will be there to capture it," said Manhattan Beach Mayor Wayne Powell. "Everyone will be able to see and feel the excitement and love in our community as we celebrate our city's 100 th anniversary."

In addition to the two SKECHERS-sponsored fireworks shows, the Manhattan Beach holiday celebration includes an evening of holiday activities, including:
  • A SKECHERS snow and sled park;
  • Live music and dancing in the streets of Downtown Manhattan Beach; and
  • A holiday parade with a special appearance from Santa Claus.
