Know Your Parking Options in Downtown Campbell

Posted on December 3rd, 2015 by sheldon

Ok, we can never do this enough times. It's going to be very crowded in Downtown Campbell this Saturday for the Carol of Lights celebration. Knowing your transportation and parking options will go a long way to having a wonderful start to the holiday season with the Campbell community.

Remember, the main strip will be closed to traffic and parking. Unless you get there way before the event starts, assume that the popular options like the 2nd Street Garage (next to Stacks) will be full. The normally dependable garage next to the water tower is going to fill up fast too. Parking at the Community Center and walking in is usually the best option for big events.

Please see our Map and Directions page for a full rundown on how to get here and how to stash your wheels if you're driving. Also, please share these tips with anyone who isn't very familiar with Downtown Campbell. We want this to be fun for everyone.

Looking for a truly unique and interesting gift? Pay a visit to Kaleido Lamps in Downtown Campbell. You may have seen puzzle lamps before, but nobody does them the way they do at Kaleido Lamps. They have some one of a kind creations and you can even make a request for a certain figure or character to really impress someone!

Volunteers Needed for Ainsley House Teas & Tours

Posted on December 3rd, 2015 by DCBA

Yesterday we posted some photos of the popular Ainsley House Teas & Tours put on by the Campbell Historical Museum and Ainsley House Foundation. Sure looked like fun, but only because they had a full complement of volunteers to help serve and setup between sittings. They need at least a couple of congenial helpers to put in a few hours on Saturday (Dec 5th) and next Thursday (Dec 10th). If you can help, please email Laura Rose at [email protected].

Donate to Keep the Carol of Lights Going Strong

Posted on November 30th, 2015 by DCBA

The 30th Anniversary of the Carol of Lights in Downtown Campbell is coming up in less than a week. We all love the Carol of Lights and want to keep it going, but in order to do so, we need to raise enough money to pay for the whole shebangs. There's no city funding for this. It's paid for through business sponsorships and small donations from people who've been generous enough to contribute a few bucks to help keep it going. If you love the Carol of Lights and you can spare a little money to help fund it, you can make a donation online through the Carol of Lights website.

Your donation will be made to the Campbell Parks and Recreation Foundation, a 501c3 organization. All donations collected will be set aside specifically to cover the costs of the Carol of Lights this year and in future years.
