Festival of Lights
The Placerville community gathers each year, filling Main Street with family, friends and neighbors to share the magical moment when we kick off the Holiday Season with the lighting of the Christmas Tree. Davey Wiser will be giving stage coach rides from 4-6 PM. Shops are open late, restaurants are ready to serve you and there will be entertainment on the street. This year we will have performances by the El Dorado High School Jazz Band and Choir on the steps of the courthouse, Jammin Dancers on the street and the El Dorado Roses will pull the switch to light the tree at 6PM and there will be opportunities to take pictures with Santa at T.W Bonkers. It is a very sweet and simple tradition we hold dear. Come early, parking can be a challenge, but it is so worth it!
