Magic to fill downtown Friday night

The holiday season to kick off tonight with festive family event

Main Street has once again decked its halls for the annual Magical Holiday Evening put on by the Pleasanton Downtown Association. From 6 to 9 p.m. tonight, downtown will be aglow with twinkle lights, decorative displays and holiday magic to start the season off with some cheer.

Included in the festive festivities are Santa and his elves, who will hand out candy canes and peppermint lollipops; carolers, choruses, bell rings and flutes providing favorite holiday sounds; as well as balloon sculptors, face painters and Crackers the clown.

Downtown clothing store Thriving Ink will be opening their new location at 520 Main St. that evening as well, with Wente pouring wine for the occasion. Moving from their their East Angela Street location, they will be stationed at the former home of Accentuals, the historical building has also been a saloon and pool hall.

Patrons of downtown restaurants and shops from Friday through Sunday could also be winners of one or more downtown gift cards.
