Holiday fun around Redwood City

in A&E/Community

Redwood City has been decked with all kinds of holiday glitter this season. Candy Cane Lane (known as Dewey Street the rest of the year) offers not only brightly lit homes, but also live entertainment. Multiple evenings have featured performers from Studio S Broadway Academy of Dance, as well as Kathy Switky and her saxophone quartet.

Not far away, Russ and Leslie Muzzolini have not only decorated their house, but also a good portion of Red Morton Park, which sits across from them on Valota Street. Light shows, synchronized with music, take place nightly at 6:30 and 8:30.

And then there’s the final stroll more than 2,000 years into the past with Bethlehem A.D., which, barring a new location and sponsor, celebrates its final year. As in its 29 previous holiday seasons, it’s not to be missed. The free time portal to the birth of Jesus, populated with manger-class animals and actors playing Mary, Joseph, King Herod, Roman centurions, angels, wise men and townspeople, is at 1305 Middlefield Road and runs through December 23. Gates open at 6 p.m. and close at 9:30 p.m.
