Now that the are behind us and businesses are up and running again, it’s time to have some holiday fun while supporting San Marino businesses at two events this week.
Mission Street merchants will be holding this event Thursday night starting at 5 p.m. Treats, Santa and carolers will set the scene while shops will offer special deals.
This event was originally slated for Friday, Dec. 2 but wind aftermath and outages caused it to be rescheduled for this Friday. Starting at 5 p.m., Huntington Drive businesses and others will stay open later and offer treats and entertainment like cookie decorating and balloon animals. Santa arrives at the San Marino Fire Department at 6 p.m. Stop by the San Marino Patch table for free Patch swag, holiday goodies and crafts. We'll be in the lot behind the holiday house bus stop (adjacent to the station).
Share the holiday love by donating an unwrapped toy to the Spark of Love Toy Drive at both of these events. The toys collected are delivered to local churches and charities that need them most. on Mission Street will collect toys at Thursday’s Mission Village Holiday Festival and the San Marino Fire Department will take toy donations at Friday’s Christmas Around the Drive.
