Crippsmas Place lights up the Fremont holidays
Submitted By Victor Carvellas
Enjoy one the East BayÕs favorite events without even getting out of your car at the annual Crippsmas Place celebration. From December 9th to the 25th, motorists and pedestrians alike can tour the neighborhood and marvel at the creativity, ingenuity and enthusiasm residents exhibit with their dazzling displays of holiday house and lawn decorations. Volunteers will be on hand to pass out candy canes and accept donations.
Crippsmas Place, founded in 1967 in the area around Nicolet Ave and Cripps Place, is planned and run by local neighbors and unpaid volunteers. The event raises money for the Crippsmas Club, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit; all donations go to designated charities except for a small amount to cover the cost of building new decorations, restoring old ones, and displaying them.
This year, the more than fifty front yard dioramas will feature your favorite animated celebrities, including Mickey and Minnie, Sophia theFirst, the Peanuts Gang, Bugs Bunny and friends, Ariel, the Ninja Turtles, Pikachu, Calvin and Hobbes, Big Bird and his Sesame Street pals, and many more.
Special guests can be expected to drop by, including Santa, carolers, the Kruz3rMob bicycle group, Classic Cruisers USA, and more. Watch http://www.crippsmasplace.org for more info.
This year Crippsmas Place is contributing to:
SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments)
HERS Breast Cancer Foundation
Adopt an Angel (for children in Alameda CountyÕs Child Protective Services)
