Hayward's downtown celebrates "Light Up the Season"
Submitted By Kim Huggett
Downtown Hayward will sparkle for the holiday season again this year at the "Light Up the Season" celebration on December 6.
"Light Up the Season," sponsored by the City of Hayward, the Hayward Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Business Improvement Area, will include holiday musical and dancing groups, children's rides, an ice-skating rink in City Hall Plaza, lighting of a huge tree in the City Hall Rotunda, and the opportunity for kids to meet Santa Claus.
The principal events will occur on B Street between Mission Boulevard and City Hall Plaza. Watkins Street, in front of City Hall Plaza, will be closed for the evening.
Entertainment will include performances from the Dancing Christmas Trees, Mariachi Juvenil, the Youth Orchestra, New Dimension, the Melody Chorus Society, the Peninsula Graces Dancing Group, and the Hayward High School Band.
In addition to the traditional tree in the City Hall Rotunda, visitors to the downtown area will enjoy twinkling lights on downtown trees, light poles and railings on B Street from Foothill Boulevard to City Hall Plaza strung by volunteers from the Hayward Rotary Club, Pacheco Brothers Landscaping, and Soulciety.
