It’s almost here – the Hometown Holidays annual children’s festival and fireworks show! See

Be part of the all-day family fun in Downtown Redwood City on Saturday, December 3, 2011 starting at 10 am. It’s on, rain or shine, and it’s FREE* admission! *Tickets will need to be purchased for the carnival rides, food vendors, and some other activities*

Each year on the first Saturday of December, Redwood City’s Downtown Business group throws a party in celebration of the Holiday Season! The entire community enjoys a parade, entertainment, SNOW, Santa Claus, and a grand finale with a fantastic FIREWORKS show!

(And don’t forget, you can support Redwood City PAL at a neighborhood pancake breakfast fundraiser for just $5, then head Downtown to enjoy the fun, festive Hometown Holidays the rest of the day! The breakfast is from 8 – 10 am at Kennedy Middle School, 2521 Goodwin Avenue. All proceeds from the fundraiser breakfast go to Redwood City PAL.)
