Celebration of Lights Downtown Extravaganza
This annual kick-start to Christmas takes place on Saturday, December 1 in downtown Modesto. Bring the whole family down for the entire day to enjoy breakfast with Santa, the historic Dickens’ Faire, the Modesto Farmers Market, and the Holiday Parade. Then, after the tree lighting, stick around for live musical entertainment! The Downtown Rockin’ Holidays performances will occur every weekend until December 24.
Holiday Wreath Workshop
If you’re feeling crafty, you won’t want to miss this class. Held at the century-old Grandpa’s Barn (at 7693 Enterprise Road Escalon) on December 5, this two-hour session will have you through creating your very own personalized wreath to take home to your loved ones while sipping on hot apple cider.
Dress up in your best red velvet suit and hat, put on your white beard, and embark on the most festive pub crawl you’ve ever been on — and see probably the most Santa Clauses you’ve ever seen in one place at the same time! Come hungry and thirsty. The festivities take place on December 8. Visit
