Holiday Happenings in Los Gatos

Los Gatos is always a busy town, and even more so during the Holidays. The "official" kick-off of the season is on December 3rd with the tree lighting on the plaza, but Holiday events start even earlier. 

Nov 26th-Dec 31st: Fantasy of Lights
Come celebrate the 11th Anniversary of "Lighting the Valley with Fun" at Fantasy of Lights, a drive-through holiday lights display spectacular at Vasona Lake County Park. The shows goes on nightly starting November 26th and continuing through December 31st at Vasona Lake County Park from 6-10pm.

Dec 2nd & 3rd: Homes for the Holidays
The Summit League sponsors this great Biennial Holiday House Tour.  The tour will feature three lovely homes in the Saratoga/Los Gatos area. The homes are decorated by professional interior designers and florists. Definitely worth seeing and the proceeds are for a good cause.

Enjoy a holiday tradition in downtown Los Gatos and feel the romance of Christmas past. Ride in an elegant horse-drawn carriage with a stately driver and horses wearing holiday bells. See the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce for details.

Dec 3rd: Tree Lighting on the Plaza
Tree Lighting festivities on Friday, December 3th, start at 4:00 pm at the Plaza Park at the corner of Main Street and Santa Cruz Ave. (Actual lighting of the tree is at 6pm.) Santa arrives on a red fire engine at 6:01pm and stays at the park until 7pm. This time honored Los Gatos tradition commences the sparkle of the season as we power up the Christmas lights on the majestic 100-year old redwood in the center of the Town Plaza. The tree can be seen from near and far and has been a town tradition for well over 30 years.

The 54th Annual Los Gatos Children's/Holidays Parade is a great family event that captures the warmth of the holiday season each year with festive entries, musical wonders and plenty of cheer. Don't miss it! Saturday, December 4th, 11:00 a.m on Santa Cruz Avenue. Rain or Shine!  Stop by Vintages ... we have a great view of the parade. 

Santa In The Town Plaza Park Family Event, 11am-3pm.   Families, kids of all ages and dogs are welcome.

More Events
There are more events scheduled. Check out the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce Community Event calendar. And remember, the fantastic Los Gatos Farmer's Market continues every Sunday morning in the Los Gatos Town Plaza. Stop by Vintages and say "hello" when you are in town.
