Things to do in Walnut Creek this Winter
Fall is moving pretty fast, which means we have the “Winter” time quickly approaching. Thanks to California living, we are blessed with easily tolerable weather year round. We felt that it would be a good idea to put together a summary of things to do in Walnut Creek during this time. There is always something going on in our community, so hopefully this post makes it easier to track down things to do with your family.
Walnut Creek On Ice
This one might be one of the most obvious, but is worth mentioning right off the bat. Walnut Creek on Ice starts in Autumn, and runs into January. It is a great ice skating rink over at Civic Park that is open until January 11, 2015. You can find more information at their website: http://iceskatewalnutcreek.com/.
Walnut Creek Historical Society Annual Holiday Faire
Over at Shadelands Ranch, the annual Holiday Faire will take place from November 29, 2014 through December 14, 2014. Per their website at http://walnutcreekhistory.info/events.php parking and admission are free.
Christmas Tree Lighting

Holiday Open House & Tree Lighting
Another tree lighting event takes place at Broadway Plaza on December 4th, 2014 at 6PM. Word has it that this year’s tree will be lit by Santa Claus himself! Might he make it snow as well? More info at Broadway Plaza’s website.
50th Annual Lighting of The Eye of Diablo
Don’t miss this one! December 7th, 2014 at 3:45PM. Since 1964, Pearl Harbor survivors and families have memorized Pearl Harbor Day by relighting the historic Beacon at Mount Diablo’s Summit. Lit at sunset, the beacon shines all night on this single evening each year. Find more information at the Save Mount Diablo website.
