Holiday Outing: 3Crosses in Castro Valley

Big thanks to Nicole Callis for sharing her family’s jolly time at 3Crosses Christmas Festival.

The Christmas Festival at 3Crosses Church in Castro Valley is merry and bright. On weekends beginning November 17 and continuing to January 7, find ice skating, live music, and twinkling holiday lights along with a Christmas train, Santa Claus, a karaoke stage, food trucks, and movie nights. Whoa, I think they have everything! Admission to the festival is free, but certain activities cost money.

Check the website for special updates.
