And here are my completely FREE holiday event picks:
Wednesday, December 3, 2008
7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Glendale City Hall--Perkins Plaza
Description: This holiday celebration features choral music, lighting of the City Hall tree and a special visit from Santa Claus! Free parking is available in the Civic Center Parking Structure (enter off of Wilson). Hot chocolate and candy canes will be served. In case of rain, the event will be cancelled.
Merry Tuba Christmas
December 14, 2008
The Alex Theatre
The annual Merry Tuba Christmas event at the Alex Theatre features hundreds of tuba and euphonium players of all ages from throughout Southern California. Song sheets will be distributed and the audience is encouraged to sing along. Tickets are FREE to the public.
The Griffith Park DWP Light Festival (Vehicle-Free From Now Until December 7th)
Driving through the annual DWP Light Festival simulates sitting in a traffic jam in Reno for 2 hours. Make sure you go on the vehicle-free nights before December 7th to miss the traffic. Last year we parked at the Zoo before walking through and it was quite lovely.
