Downtown Pleasanton’s Magical Holiday Evening


Celebrate the holidays at Downtown Pleasanton’s Magical Holiday Evening, the annual downtown open house. The streets will come alive with the sights and sounds of the holidays.

Start your holiday shopping from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, November 21, and celebrate the season with an evening of holiday festivities. Downtown shops, restaurants and businesses usher in the holidays with festive decorations, twinkling lights, banners, beautiful window displays and holiday treats.

Festivities include visits with Santa and encounters with Elves who will hand out candy canes and peppermint lollipops. There will be carolers, choruses, bell ringers, flutes – all singing and playing your favorite holiday tunes. Children of all ages will be delighted and entertained by Dana Smith and his dog Lacey as Dana performs amazing fire juggling, acrobatics and circus arts while Lacey "sings” with Dana and “leaps” over willing volunteers! Balloon sculptors, face painters and Crackers the Clown will all be on hand to celebrate the magic of the season.

Shop and dine downtown throughout the weekend (Friday evening through Sunday) and you could be the winner of one or more Downtown Pleasanton Gift Cards. Pleasanton’s  distinctive downtown and hometown atmosphere are inviting. Families, friends and individuals can shop, dine and discover the holidays are brighter when visiting this charming destination.

Where to stay: When visiting Pleasanton, you'll find around 16 hotels. One of the least expensive is the Best Western, normally well under $100 per night. A host of mid-range hotels in Pleasanton include popular amenities such as affordability and extended stay suites. But we always prefer the chain hotels: Hyatt, Hilton Pleasanton at the Club and  Four Points by Sheraton.
