Downtown San Rafael will once again host its annual Holiday Parade & Winter Wonderland. In its 40th year, the event features a Holiday Marketplace with arts and crafts, live entertainment, children's activities, snow sledding, and one of the largest Holiday Parades in the Bay Area.
The event is attended by people from all over the Bay Area. It also enjoys a very local feel and is known as a great destination for people of all ages.
Downtown San Rafael sparkles with holiday cheer on Thanksgiving weekend, when the 40th Parade of Lights and Winter Wonderland takes to Fourth Street with shopping, entertainment, food, wine and fun for families from throughout the Bay Area. Santa and Mrs. Claus are on hand for the parade and tree-lighting festivities, while the kids flock to a snow-covered hill made just for sledding.
