A forest of decorated Christmas trees, homemade cakes and cookies and other edible delights and tables laden with seasonal crafts drew hundreds of celebrants Tuesday to the first of three days of the Festival of Trees in Vacaville.
Hundreds flowed into the Vacaville Recreation Center for the event, one of the city’s first events touting the joys of the holiday season.
1 It’s been a soggy Sunday
More than two inches of rain have fallen in the Auburn area, and Sacramento has seen nearly an inch in the past 24 hours.
Steady rain will fall throughout the night Sunday.
Showers will continue Monday before becoming a little more scattered on Tuesday. On Wednesday, there will be a few brief morning showers before things dry out.
Another storm moves in next weekend.
As clearly American as a painting by Norman Rockwell, Vacaville’s joy in the main tree will illuminate every corner of our hearts and our hearts for the 37th time on Tuesday. Before the rains came, there was a spectrum that PG&E could disconnect first. God free us. That was a new “what would happen if” on the 37-year list of “what could go wrong?” Will the tree appear? Will the p.a. system go south? Will the live camel of the Nativity be released and scare the carriages? To that I add, what happens if the switch is released and nothing happens? That has been my biggest fear for 36 years, long before the north winds, dry grass and power lines got in the way. When the crowd made a ten-to-one countdown, I closed my eyes and muttered: Lights, don’t fail us now.

The tempting aroma of roasted turkey beckoned from the Vacaville Veterans Hall Thursday afternoon and inside, Thanksgiving was in full swing.
At least 100 people had arrived for the annual community Thanksgiving meal, and smiles aplenty were on display from volunteers and community members alike.

VACAVILLE — Part of the mission of Bliss Urban Arts Center is to bring people together through dance. One way that the 15-year-old Vacaville-based company achieves that is by participating in community events.
While the stars of Opportunity House’s annual fundraiser, the Festival of Trees, are the elaborately decorated Christmas trees for sale, Bliss will also be performing and hopefully getting the audience into the act as well.
