The SLIA welcomes all to kick off the season at 5:30 p.m. for the Holiday Tree Lighting in Estudillo Plaza—once the tree is lit, the holiday party starts! After the Holiday Tree Lighting, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will make a special visit for free photo opportunities in front of the tree. The evening will also feature the “Holiday Tree Lane,” a row of artificial holiday trees lining the pathway from Washington Ave. to E. 14th Street, donated by the SLIA and decorated by local San Leandro schools.
Following the Tree Lighting is the San Leandro Downtown Association’s “It’s A Wonderful Night” Holiday Celebration. This family-friendly celebration includes holiday entertainment, games, cookie decorating, horse-drawn carriage rides and arts and crafts for the kids. In addition to these festivities, holiday movies will also be playing outdoors all night to create a magical winter wonderland experience for neighbors and visitors of all ages.
