From the City of Pleasanton:
The City of Pleasanton will once again host the Annual Hometown Holiday Celebration to be held on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. along Main Street in downtown Pleasanton. The centerpiece of this free event is a festive community-based parade followed by the lighting of a holiday tree in front of the Museum on Main.
The parade always kicks off with one of Pleasanton’s award-winning high school marching bands from either Amador Valley High School or Foothill High School. The band is followed by dozens of holiday inspired entries including Pleasanton’s own Balloon Platoon, the Pleasanton City Council, hundreds of Cub Scouts and Brownies, local car clubs and dog clubs, and much more.
Main Street will close to vehicular traffic at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 1. Parade viewers are encouraged to shop and dine in historic Downtown Pleasanton after staking out their viewing turf.
The Hometown Holiday program relies on the support of the community to make the event a success and volunteers are still needed! Those interested in volunteering for the event are encouraged to visit www.hometownholiday.com.
In the event of rain, a parade cancellation telephone hotline will be implemented and updated each hour after 2:30 p.m. on parade day, December 1. The Cancellation Information Phone Line is (925) 931-5352.
