The city of Pleasanton will host the annual Hometown Holiday Celebration from 5-7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, on Main Street.

The festive community-based parade will be followed by the lighting of a holiday tree in front of the Museum on Main.

High school marching bands will kick off the parade, followed by dozens of holiday inspired entries including the Pleasanton Weekly's Holiday Fund car, the Centerpointe Presbyterian Church's men's club's Balloon Platoon, a horse-drawn wagon carrying the Pleasanton City Council, hundreds of Cub Scouts and Brownies, local car clubs and dog clubs, and much more.

Main Street will close to traffic at 4 p.m. for the parade.

Volunteers are still needed to help with the parade. Those interested can register at 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. The cancellation information phone line is 931-5352.
