I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! One of my favorite things is looking at holiday lights. The Fisherman’s Wharf Community Benefit District and the St. Francis Yacht Club present the oldest and largest lighted holiday boat parade on San Francisco Bay this Saturday near Pier 39. This is a free event for the Bay Area holiday season.
On a different note, check out a unique play about Oz. In Castro Valley, “Christmas in Oz” is playing which is a musical about old friends.

Bay Area Weekend Picks for 12/1-12/3: This holiday season is here and no matter what your religion or background, you can’t resist the overall joy most people feel this time of year. A great activity this weekend is the annual holiday parade in Pleasanton. This is two hours of pure joy including a visit from good old Santa Claus. Besides a fun parade, take the opportunity to go to a local ice ring. Many pop-up ice rings are put up during the holidays including in many malls and within some tree lots. Happy Holidays.

This weekend is America’s original holiday, Thanksgiving.
This is an opportunity for being thankful, spending time with family, and shopping. If you love getting a deal then Black Friday is the day for you! One great way to find the deals this Black Friday is at bestblackfriday.com. If you’re not a shopper, this weekend is also a great opportunity to help some of our local food banks. The San Francisco and Marin Food Banks hold a 5K Turkey Trot on November 24, where you can help raise funds for those in need.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
