Kick Off The Holidays With Fun Filled Events
Thanksgiving may still be a week away, but that doesn’t stop the holiday preparations and festivities from getting under way. This week, there are some fun-filled holiday events coming up in the Bay Area (I know - Christmas seems to start earlier every year… It seems sacrilegious to begin Christmas before the Thanksgiving turkey is even in oven.)
In the East Bay, the Bay Street Annual Christmas Tree Lighting will be in Emeryville on November 20, 2014 and will include free refreshments and Santa. In the South Bay, I think the Homes For The Holidays tour looks like fun. More than 60 designers have joined forces to decorate 3 stunning homes in Los Gatos and Saratoga, including a 3000 sq. ft. “cottage”, a contemporary California Mediterranean estate, and a Villa with a view.
The Marin based Lucas Valley Chamber Orchestra will be visiting the East Bay on Saturday, November 22 where they will be performing at the El Cerrito Community Center. The next day, they'll perform a little closer to home with a 3 pm concert on Sunday, November 23 at Christ Presbyterian Church in Terra Linda.
If you are going to be in The City, Embarcadero Center will be celebrating my birthday on November 21 with its 28th Annual Building Lighting Ceremony and Carnival. Also in San Francisco, Pier 39 will be kicking off the holidays with the annual Tree Lighting Celebration on November 22 & 23.
Stay tuned next week for some more holiday events around the Bay Area and beyond that will be fun for the entire family!
