As a father and uncle, I feel the excitement of children during the holiday season. The sparkle of lights, the baked goodies, the beautiful decorations, the homemade presents crafted at school with such love by caring teachers, and the talk of visits by cherished family and friends make this a magical time of year.
The Tri-Valley area features so many holiday events, it’s almost overwhelming. Whether you want to visit many of our popular Livermore Vineyards, see a show at the Bankhead Theater, shop the many stores at Stoneridge Mall, or grab a movie and bite to eat at The Regal Hacienda Crossings, the Tri-Valley has something for everyone.
Don’t Miss the Award Winning Holiday Light Display at 7574 Sutton Lane in Dublin, California
Our family loves to make a habit of seeing the light displays in our area, some of which have won awards! Last year, the family at 7574 Sutton Lane in Dublin entered in the City of Dublin Holiday Lights contest and won Best Overall in the City of Dublin!
This year, the family added even more spectacular features to their already popular display: “We have multiple moving figures from Santa waving to penguins trying to fly, deer moving their head and a train with moving wheels. There is a 13 foot candy cane with lights and a 4 foot wreath. Lights synced to music.”
The family will have the lights on display until January 4th, so don’t miss your opportunity to share in the fun and lights display. For a sample of their light display, you can check out their website.
