Downtown will come alive with holiday cheer on Saturday, November 17 for two “magical” community events.
The Pleasanton Downtown Association will host “Earlier Than the Bird” on Saturday, November 17 from 7 a.m. to 12 noon. This popular event is designed to launch the holiday shopping season in a festive and entertaining way, and provide amazing deals at our unique downtown stores BEFORE Black Friday. Participating downtown retail shops will be open at 7 a.m., providing special offers and tasty refreshments. Shoppers who arrive to the Museum on Main (603 Main St.) wearing their pajamas will receive a free “Downtown Pleasanton” keepsake tumbler as a gift! Also, KKIQ will have their promotions team, van, prize wheel and more in downtown from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and will make live remote announcements about the event.

Santa and his helpers will be available at the Museum on Main (603 Main St.) for photos while elves will roam the street distributing candy canes.
