Holiday cheer will be found in Angels Camp this Saturday from 4 pm to 8 pm with a Christmas Parade, caroling, a tree lighting, an open house and a Wine Stroll.
Candy Myers, the President of the Angels Camp Business Association (ACBA), was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
The Wine Stroll and Open House will begin at 4 p.m. and run through 8 p.m.
Businesses in Angels Camp are encouraged to keep their doors open, hold special sales and offer treats.
A commemorative wine glass is available for $5 each for the adults who would like to take part in the wine stroll.
The 25th annual Christmas parade route runs from St Patrick’s Church and runs down main street in historic Angels Camp to the creek. The theme of the parade is “Paint the Town Red”, which is a celebration of the firefighters and the emergency response to the recent Butte Fire.
The guest of honor throughout this time in Angels Camp is Santa. The jolly man will ride in the parade and then meet with kids at the Utica Hotel after the parade.
Before the parade at 4:15 pm, candlelit caroling with musician Grover Anderson will take place at the Calaveras Visitor’s Center. That is where the downtown Angels Camp Christmas tree, which will be lit at 4:30 pm is located.
The ACBA has been around for more than forty years and, according to Knuist, 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.
