Sunday, November 23rd, 2014 4-8pm

Downtown Chico officially kicks off the season in a tradition of holiday hospitality Sunday, November 23rd from 4-8pm— it's the much-anticipated Christmas Preview! Merchants debut their holiday cheer by inviting the community to delight in an evening filled with the sights, sounds and anticipation of the holidays.

Stores don beautiful decorations, provide entertainment and offer delicious refreshments. Strolling carolers add a special charm to the downtown streets. Santa will arrive to his station on Third Street & Broadway - a perfect opportunity for a visit and a photo.

Special “on-street” attractions include (all are tentative):

  • Santa Visits! Arriving in a horse-drawn carriage, Santa will visit children at his station at Third & Broadway from 4:30-7:30pm. Youngsters can stop by for a visit, a special gift and a photo opportunity!
  • Live entertainment in the streets, by some of Chico's best holiday performers, including the Childrens Choir of Chico. Sounds of the Valley, Gesundheit Barbership Quartet & The Yule Logs!
  • Horse drawn carriage rides
  • Salvation Army serving delicious hot beverages from the Disaster Services Canteen
