Come and celebrate the holidays with the whole community at Redwood City’s annual “Hometown Holidays” event at the San Mateo Courthouse Square from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Redwood City Improvement Association (RCIA) will be enhancing the event this year by investing $27,000 to light up two large, Redwood trees with red, green and white LED lights for the first time! The trees surround the Courthouse Square and the community will come together this evening for a countdown to light the trees. Hometown Holidays will also include a parade, live entertainment, a holiday-inspired Magic Lantern 3D Show sponsored by RCIA, ice sculptures, Santa, real snow and much more! There will also be activities to keep the kids busy all day including the annual Children’s Festival, carnival and petting zoo. The community is encouraged to bring their families and friends out to experience an entertaining evening for all ages and check out the new additions to this wonderful free event.
