Santa comes early to Pleasanton


Thousands turned out last Saturday night to watch Pleasanton's Hometown Holiday celebration, including a two-hour parade followed by the lighting of the city's holiday tree in front of the Museum on Main.

Brad Kinney, shown here with Santa, helped plan the event along with Michelle Dunaway, Event Administrator, and Chuck Deckert, who took this photo.

The parade featured hundreds of floats, colorfully-dressed marching groups, including the marching bands from Amador Valley and Foothill high schools, the renowned Balloon Platoon, scouting and church groups, hot rod car clubs, dancing troupes, and, of course, Santa himself.

Mayor Jerry Thorne will lit the Holiday Tree, which will stay lighted through New Year's Day.
