Pleasanton all aglow

Where to go to light up your holidays

Bob's World has been presented by "Santa Bob" Stanley at his home at 2612 Calle Reynoso for more than 20 years. He works for five weeks of the year installing old favorites and new inspirations to offer a display that is complete with music.

This year the display will feature synchronized lights, more animated characters in Santa's Village, new nativity scenes and a snowman that showers visitors with "snow."

The lights will be on between Dec. 13 and 28, from 6 to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 6 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Santa will visit from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 21.

For those searching for outdoor holiday displays in Pleasanton and in other Tri-Valley communities, the website LightsoftheValley.com is a good place to start. Alex Dourov, a Livermore resident, started the website in 1999 as a go-to guide of the best decorated homes in the Tri-Valley. It now includes much of the Bay Area and Northern California but its entries for Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley remain a valuable resource.
