Angels Camp Christmas Parade And Open House
Downtown Angels Camp
Angels Camp, CA - The holiday cheer will kick off in Angels Camp this Saturday at 4 pm with the 23rd Annual Christmas Parade.
Anne Forrest, the Director and past President of the Angels Camp Business Association (ACBA), was Thursday's KVML "Newsmaker of the Day".
The parade will begin at 4 p.m. The guest of honor is Santa of course.
The route runs from St Patrick's Church and comes down main street in Angels Camp to the creek.
The Christmas Open House also takes place on Saturday from 4 pm through 8 pm. Businesses in Angels Camp are encouraged to keep their doors open, hold special sales and offer treats.
Following the parade, candlelit caroling will take place beginning at the creek and will move up the street to the Calaveras Visitor's Center. That is where the downtown Angels Camp Christmas tree (which will be lit on Saturday) is located.
The ACBA has been around for more than forty years and, according to Forrest, it is similar to a Chamber of Commerce, only on a smaller scale with a concentrated focus on the community.
Membership is open to any company doing business in Angels Camp as well as to individuals. Membership provides opportunities for networking, cross-marketing and promotion.
