Santa was ready to ring in the holidays in Downtown Campbell and so were all the ponies, the cute petting zoo animals, and everyone else as their most festive selves. Unfortunately, mother nature also weighed in with likely showers on Saturday afternoon so we made the difficult decision to reschedule the Carol of Lights for early next year as a winter themed fun festival.
The last time we did this was in 2000 when the 1999 Carol of Lights had to be called off due to bad weather and we had a Winter Wonderland in February event instead. That's what we're aiming for again and we'll announce all the details early next year after they've been worked out.
If you're still ready to celebrate the holiday season the Campbell way, please open your heart to the Campbell Community Toy Program and join in at the Making Spirits Bright Fundraiser at Darling-Fischer Memorial Chapel in Downtown Campbell.
About the Campbell Community Toy Program
The Campbell Community Toy Program has been helping local families in need for over 38 years. The program is a combined effort of many Community Partners who work in conjunction with the Campbell Union School District Grades K-8 to provide toys, games, books, and fun gifts for Christmas to children in families in need.
In addition, this year the Community Toy Program will again be working with the American Cancer Society to support local families with children or parents who are receiving treatment and may not be able to provide gifts on their own.
