Here is some info about the event.
Free, outdoor 1940s era Christmas village, open 5:00 – 9:00 PM
Think Main Street Disneyland meets South Lake Tahoe.
This is a full scale village with everything from an old fashioned bakery, to a vintage
theatre with an outer kiosk to purchase popcorn and tickets, to a 30 foot Christmas
tree and Christmas
tree lot, to street carolers, to coffee shops, to live snow falling, and even to
a full light show that runs every hour as the entire place lights up in sequence to songs.
The Fulton Street Jazz Band will perform on the Main Stage Friday Dec 14 and Sat Dec 22 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
Everyone’s invited. Bring the whole family.

Here is a note about the event posted on a Dixieland Jazz Mailing list after our last performance.
My wife and I attended this event last night in Rocklin, California,
primarily to hear Fulton Street. (Mr. Ringwald had sent an email about the
free event.) It turned out to be a marvelous re-creation of a 40's main
street, with various "stores", refreshments, and all of the participants
dressed in 40's-era clothing. The chestnuts were hand-roasted over open
fires, and were perfectly cooked. Fulton Street was great and added hugely
to the atmosphere. Kids (little ones) got in front of the stage and danced
with abandon to the beat. One couple in 40's clothing performed entire
dance routines from that era. And the kids got their parents out dancing
with them. Fulton Street played a variety of Christmas and traditional
numbers, all of which the audience loved. Thank you to Mr. Ringwald for
letting us know about this opportunity, and kudos to the entire band for the
brightness they brought to this marvelous event...
