Crippsmas Place

by Heidi Leung

Every Christmas, holiday spirit shows itself in Fremont in the form of Crippsmas Place. A tradition that began 30 years ago, this festive event uses colorful cardboard cutouts such as Spiderman, Harry Potter, Lilo and Stitch, and Mickey Mouse, as well as very elaborate Christmas lights to attract a crowd and raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Every year new popular characters are added to the displays and candy canes are handed out to make this annual event even more delightful. Crippsmas Place provides a warm glow on Nicolet Street in Fremont. It's beautiful, heartwarming, and sure to become a yearly tradition for people who decide to visit. This year Crippsmas Place will be lighted Dec. 6 - Dec. 31, on weeknights from 6 p.m. -10 p.m. and on weekends from 5 p.m. -12 a.m.
