The flickering flames from the children’s candles helped heat little hands but the real warmth at Thursday’s Downtown Holiday Open House came from the shared celebration of a Davis tradition.

Families braved near-freezing temperatures Thursday evening to participate in the Children’s Parade — marching, pedaling and being towed from the Davis Food Co-op to the E Street Plaza. When City Council members flipped the switch to light up the locally grown Christmas tree on the plaza, the crowd cheered.

Visitors were treated to musical performances by the Davis High School Jazz Choir and Madrigal Singers along with the ever-popular Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh.

Later, children waited patiently in line at the former site of Dimple Records to sit on Santa Claus’ lap or whisper a wish in the ear of Mrs. Claus. Horse-drawn carriage rides departed every 10 minutes across the street, from in front of nestware. And Grace Valley Carolers serenaded families as they arrived at the Varsity Theatre for continuous free showings of the television classic, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

The evening concluded with even more holiday music, thanks to performances by the Voices of Experience, an adult a cappella choir, at The Avid Reader, and several local bands and musicians playing at the free Thursday Live! holiday music show at the Odd Fellows Hall.
