Pleasanton city officials this week announced the return of its annual Hometown Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Celebration on the first Saturday in December, and they are looking for residents, businesses and community groups interested in participating in the procession down Main Street.

"Entrants are encouraged to use this year's theme, 'Light Up Pleasanton' and adorn their floats, cars, and wagons with festive lighting," officials said.

The event is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Dec. 4. The deadline to apply as an entry is Nov. 19. Visit www.hometownholiday.com.

The 2021 parade -- weather permitting -- would be the first Pleasanton holiday parade since 2018. The 2019 procession was called off due to inclement weather, while the 2020 event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated health order.
