Should be plenty of fun with traditional Christmas carolers dressed as Dickens characters from 5:30-7:30, kids inflatable jumpers and slides, live music, projeced spinning snowflakes on walls of buildings, a 30-foot inflatable Christmas tree, colored lights, hot cider, hot chocolate, coffee, and plenty of food, drink, and holiday gifts, all thanks to Gold Line and other sponsors, espcially Forest Lawn, as well as Matt Denny's Ale House Restaurant, attorney April Verlato, Bacani-Taylor NAI Capital, and the Arcadia Downtown Business Association. This is another presentation of the non-profit Arcadia's Best Foundation, which brought you the Patriotic Festival and parade, and the annual One Community, One Book programs, and has scheduled the first casual cars and coffee event called Carcadia 66 for next Saturday morning in the parking lot behind Denny's.
