Looking for a way to get out of the house on the day after Thanksgiving with a house full of guests or kids who need to burn off some energy? Try the 32nd Annual Parade of Lights & Winter Wonderland in downtown San Rafael, complete with the arrival of Santa & Ms. Claus, a holiday parade, the lighting of the official City Holiday Tree, 4th Street ablaze with glittering holiday lights, free snow sledding and a special Holiday Market.
Plus, you can park for free by patronizing one of the dozens of local businesses who will be handing out free three-hour parking validation certificates, redeemable in the two City garages located on 3rd and A and 3rd and C Streets. The parking meters in the lot located at 1550 4th Street will also be provided with 3 hours free parking.
