Lafayette rings in the holiday season

November 17, 2017 by  

It’s a Wonderful Life in Lafayette is taking place next month, presented by the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce.

This celebration is centered on the tree lighting in Plaza Park, marking the true kick-off to the holiday season. There will be live music, a community sing-a-long of Christmas carols and plenty of craft activities for the children. Refreshments and holiday treats will also be available free of charge.

No doubt children attending will be most excited by the arrival of Santa Claus. He will travel in Old Betsy, a vintage fire truck. The parade will begin at 4:00 PM from the Lafayette Historical Society and then travel down Golden Gate Way to Lafayette Plaza. Once he arrives, children will be able to have their pictures taken with Santa, and will also have the opportunity to visit him and talk about what they want for Christmas.

This annual event is a popular one that likely attracts a large majority of families from Lafayette. In order to spread the word in the community quickly and inexpensively, organizers will likely invest in printed items like flyers and posters.

It’s a Wonderful Life in Lafayette will be held at Plaza Park on December 1 from 4:00 to 6:30 PM. Admission is free. For more information about this event, and planned activities, contact the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce at 925-284-7404.
