We are off and running for the holiday seasons! Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's is fast appearing in our hearts, minds, and pocketbooks.
Brandon, my village buddy and I are placing bets as to whether Franklin, the village rat, will be eaten for dinner or served dinner for Thanksgiving by Mathilda, the canyon coyote.....never can tell.
Christmas on the Prado AKA: December Nights, is happening the first Friday night and Saturday night of December from approximately 4-11 PM.....As usual, the Village will be lit up with fairy white lights throughout the patio, live music will entertain your ears, the aroma of yummy treats will tickle your nose, Santa will let you sit on his lap for a photograph, lots of art and food booths will be set up for your perusing, and the village artists will be looking forward to sharing their art.
Most of all, Brandon, the poodle and I, will be awaiting to greet you, get belly rubs, pats on the head, compliments, and perhaps taste treats from you....I will be wearing the big red bow and Brandon will be wearing his green bow tie.
As usual, parking will be at a premium, although there is paid parking next to the carousel....shuttle service is provided from the Naval Hospital....we hope to see up to 200,000 visitors over the weekend.....museums are free at night.....lots of festivities throughout the park.....and keep in mind, it is usually COLD.
Hope to see you there!
Love to you!
