November 22, 2016Posted by pamela |
Mill Valley's downtown plaza will once again be filled with an eclectic mix of live music, children playing, and community togetherness when the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce and the City of Mill Valley present the annual Winterfest, taking place Sunday, December 4, from 11 am to 5 pm. Winterfest celebrates the holiday season with a fun-filled afternoon for children, families, and anyone who enjoys the holidays!
This year’s Winterfest will be the best one yet, with an expanded array of food vendors, new activities, and an extensive live performance program. Activities include the famous snow slide, holiday arts and crafts, games and activities, and delicious seasonal food and drink courtesy of Piazza D'Angelo, Balboa Café, El Paseo, Equator Coffees & Teas, Good Earth Natural Foods, and Honeymoon Ice Cream.
The highlight of the day is a visit from Santa Claus himself, who arrives in an antique Mill Valley fire truck at 1 pm. He'll be on hand for photos until 3 pm. The day's fun and festivities will be capped by a spectacular holiday tree lighting ceremony at dusk. Performers at this year's Winterfest include the Tam High School Wind Ensemble, SingersMarin Caroling Kids, Happy Feet Dance School, Rock the Ages, Roco Dance, and more.
This year's Winterfest will also serve as an opportunity to help those in need. The Donation Station in the Plaza will be there to collect donations of canned food for the SF-Marin Food Bank and unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots and Performing Stars of Marin.
This event is free and open to the public. There is a $2 suggested donation for each run down the snow slide, three runs for $5, or $10 for unlimited rides. Free bike parking is offered courtesy of the Marin County Bicycle Coalition and Tam Bikes. For more information, visit www.EnjoyMillValley.com or call (415) 388-9700.
