There are a lot of wonderful events planned for Fourth Street this season. Be sure to pop in and say hello if you are on the street taking in the spectacle!
Come visit Santa on Fourth Street -- he will be posing for FREE Pictures with his Sleigh from 12 to 4pm on the weekends of December 10, 11, 17, and 18.
Live Music and Entertainment
Local artists will keep your spirits bright with live music and entertainment all along Fourth Street each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and December 21 through 24. The full schedule is posted here.
Santa's reindeer won't have any trouble finding Fourth Street. Thousands and thousands of bright and colorful lights adorn the trees and lampposts, bringing holiday sparkle to the shopfronts and restaurants.
Children's Book Drive
Now an annual tradition! Every year we collect hundreds of books for children. This year, all books will be donated to B.O.S.S. (Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency) and their Children's Learning Center which provides literacy programs for homeless children in Alameda County. Bring new or gently used books to The Ark (1812 Fourth St.), Books Inc (1760 Fourth St.), Builders Booksource (1817 Fourth St.), Crate & Barrel (1785 Fourth St.), or Sur La Table (1806 Fourth St.).
Many of the shops and restuarants are hosting classes, trunk shows, and parties all season long. Last year's New Year's Eve party at Zut! was a magical night of dinner and dancing and this year's promises to be an equal success. For a full list of the shops and links to all their websites, please visit the Fourth Street Shops website or follow them on Facebook.
