Hundreds downtown for festive holiday shopping

Merchants get the jump on the season

by Jeb Bing

Pleasanton's downtown came alive last weekend with special holiday events ranging from "Earlier Than the Bird" special sales at 22 downtown merchants to afternoon and evening strolls complete with wine, beer, music and tasty samplings.

Hundreds turned out at downtown stores and restaurants as the events, sponsored by the Pleasanton Downtown Association, and got a head start on today's Black Friday and Cyber Monday next week, which cater to national retail chains and Internet shoppers.

Even Santa stopped by last Saturday at the Museum on Main so that children could share their gift lists and parents could snap a few photos for the scrapbook.
