Friday Nov 23: Christmas in the Park Tree Decorating

(Picture by James Addison)

Every year, there is a Christmas In The Park exhibition of lights and tree decorations in San Jose Plaza de Cesar Chavez.  The trees are sponsored & decorated by community group, non-profit, school, business or scout troops… and this is the 2nd year that the Southbay Burners Regional Group have reserved a community tree and invite you all to join us in decorating the tree!  There will even be a “Best Tree” award this year!

WHEN:  Friday Nov 23, from 9am to noon  (lead by Manea from RC regional team)

WHERE:  Plaza de Cesar Chavez, downtown San Jose

Fun Competition:  This event is open to all!  We encourage you to participate in the November Meet&Greet to create your own ornaments and/or re-purpose your playa shwag to use as decoration! You can also take pictures of your creations & the best picture will get bragging rights!

Tips for Decorators:

  • Use weatherproof materials to avoid damage by wind and rain, so please make sure your decor will hold up to the elements.
  • Be sure to “tie” your ornaments to the tree branches so they do not come loose during the run of our event.
  • Do not use expensive ornaments or decor as the city is not responsible for any damage or stolen items that “The Grinch” or any other “Grinch-like” may try to acquire.
  • You can bring your own lights (make sure they are LED) to add to the decor of your tree.
  • Do not bring any ornaments made of food as the “creatures” of the park tend to enjoy them too much.
