In the Crippsmas spirit
Lighting up holiday spirit, celebrating childhood, and showing neighborhood pride since 1970, Crippsmas Place brightens up the winter nights beginning on Saturday, December 8. Over 70 homes will be decorated with lights and plywood cutout characters on five streets in north Fremont, along Nicolet Avenue and in the cul-de-sacs of Asquith Place, Cripps Place, Wellington Place, and Nicolet Court.
This cheerful holiday tradition raises funds for six charities: the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society; Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; and local charities Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments; HERS Breast Cancer Foundation; Kidango "Gifts from the Heart" program, which provides needy children with basics and toys; and Adopt an Angel, serving children in Alameda County's Child Protective Services. Cash donations will be accepted on the Wellington Place cul-de-sac, where viewers can also pick up a free candy cane.
Enjoy the artistic creations and collaborations of this wonderful community staple while helping to make a difference that lasts well beyond the season.
