Winterfest, the 94941’s annual holiday celebration, returns to the Downtown Plaza on Sunday, Dec. 4, featuring yet another fantastic lineup of singers, dancers and musicians to perform throughout the day. We’ll have a bunch of great children’s games and activities like the giant rainbow slide, a jumpy house, cornhole, a giant Connect4 game and an array of additional activities. Santa will be on the Plaza, meeting children and families and taking photos with them. We’ll conclude with some carols and a Tree-Lighting ceremony!! This landmark event is produced by Steve Bajor’s TeamPro Event.
Prior to the big day, we’re also continuing the popular Winterfest Holiday Hunt, a three-week, scavenger hunt-style contest at more than 30 businesses throughout Mill Valley. The contest centers around Iridescent Stars provided by the MIll Valley Chamber. Businesses owners place a star in storefront windows or inside their businesses, and kids accompanied by a parent take photos of the stars, as selfies in front of the stars they choose at some amazing local restaurants, retail shops, salons and more. The Holiday Hunt runs through Dec. 16. Holiday Hunters who email at least eight of their photos as attachments to email@example.com are entered into a raffle for one of 18 $20 gift cards to participating businesses (one gift card per raffle winner), with the contenstant who takes and submits the most star photos winning a $40 gift card. We’ll be posting a series of clues about participating businesses for Holiday Hunters on the EMV Blog on Nov. 25.
