December 21, 2004 > Crippsmas Place
The most visited and famous of neighborhoods is Crippsmas Place although the festivities and lighting extends far beyond the street. This area of Fremont has been celebrating together for over 30 years. Make sure you have some time to slowly walk or drive through the neighborhood and be sure to help this community of over 50 homes support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Each year, nearly 150,000 people visit the Brookvale neighborhood to see hundreds of cartoon characters including Spiderman, Harry Potter, Lilo and Stitch, Disney and Looney Toons characters as well as traditional characters including a twenty-four-foot Santa Claus.
