Join the festivities as Santa lights up the night to begin the holiday season on Wednesday evening with the lighting of Pleasant Hill’s 25-foot Holiday Tree downtown.
There’s lots of activity for the entire family with a Holiday Crafts Fair, free carriage rides, caroling and dancers on the Plaza stage, and pictures with Santa.
Children can find Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and other characters spreading cheer along Crescent Drive. Free hot chocolate and cookies will help warm the night and merchant give-a-ways make the evening fun for the whole family.
The festivities start at 5 p.m. with entertainment on the Downtown Plaza Stage (between Sweet Tomatoes and Jack’s) and at the Plaza in front of Pasta Pomodoro.
Join in the merriment and experience the small town charm of Pleasant Hill, on from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The tree lighting takes place at 6 p.m.
Be sure to bring an umbrella as wet weather is forecasted.
