Ok… so not in Oakland, but literally just 4 blocks away across the High Street bridge. These were all shot on the 3200 block of Thompson Ave. (aka Christmas Tree Lane) between High Street and Fernside in Alameda. It’s an annual tradition and each year this little block receives some 30,000 plus visitors in the month of December. Wow.
Lots of folks were driving the block, but it’s much more fun to get out and walk the lovely tree lined street. Friendly neighbors even have hot cocoa, cider, and cookies for sale… and for a good cause too!
Check it out if you want to get your Christmas camp on. There’s a little something for everyone…
All the holiday partying’s got Frosty a little run down…
And if you want to see even more photos, there was a whole crew of photographers shooting… check Flickr in the next few days for the tag “AlamedaFlickrChristmas2009.”
Hiya, I used some of your pics at http://www.510families.com/content/must-see-holiday-lights-alamedas-christmas-tree-lane and linked to you at the bottom of the post. (Let me know if there’s anything you don’t like about that!)
