What is your favorite Livermore Valley holiday event? As your Livermore Valley real estate agent, I like to know that Livermore Valley residents are enjoying all that our local towns have to offer this time of year! This weekend alone, there are tons of family-friendly events happening. I’ve put together a list here so all you have to do is jot down the ones that sound interesting and head out!

1.  Take a road trip to Mountain House for the 5th Annual Holiday Lights Contest! More than 50 Mountain House residents decorate their homes for the holidays and compete for the top prize. You can gather up the family and some hot chocolate and enjoy the sights! Then, vote for your favorite online between Dec. 13 and Dec. 20. One voter will win a gift card.

2.  Tonight, starting at 5:30 p.m., head to the Arroyo Seco Holiday Mini Mall for all of your holiday shopping! The school is decked out with local, original arts, crafts and gift ideas. From candles, purses, scarves and hair bows, to jewelry, sweets, memory books and clothing, you’re sure to find something for everyone on your list. There will also be a bake sale, coffee and raffles.

3.  Head to Danville, CA on Saturday for the 20th Annual Breakfast with Santa! From 8 a.m. to noon, enjoy pancakes or crepes, eggs, sausages and oranges. You’ll receive a complimentary photo with Santa, too! Also enjoy a bake sale, a craft boutique and children’s activities. Cost is $8 per person, ages three and under free.

4.  Beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Valley Children’s Museum in Dublin, CA is hosting their December Second Saturday event! Bring the kids by for snowmen and snowflake crafts, hot chocolate and light refreshments. The museum will also be collecting canned, non-perishable food items.

5.  Saturday evening, enjoy watching the holiday classic, Elf, on a 40-foot screen! This screen will be set up at the Amador Valley High School football field. Doors open at 5 p.m., when you can enjoy visiting with Santa, listening to Christmas carols and eating snacks from the snack bar. The movie will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for students and $5 for kids under age 10.

6.  Looking for some new holiday dishes to serve at your Christmas dinner this year? Head to Pans on Fire in Pleasanton, CA on Saturday at 5 p.m. for an English Yuletide Feast! You will learn how to roast a haunch of meat, make Yorkshire pudding, creamed horseradish sauce and a gingered pear tart with cider-bourbon sauce. Sunday, they have cookie baking and exchange. Call to register!
