Big day in Fremont tomorrow. First up, it’s the Lenin Lighting at 5:30 p.m. It’s recommended to get in the area by 5 in order to find a cozy spot.
If you’re not familiar, the thing we’re actually lighting is a neon red star that will sit on Lenin’s head. This year the star was fixed up by the good folks over at City Light Neon, who did the work as a donation to the community.
There will be live music courtesy of Rabbit Stew String Band and free refreshments: Peet’s coffee, sweetened mint tea, hot cocoa, and Mighty-O Donuts. Santa Claus will also be on hand handing out oranges. Why oranges? It’s Fremont, that’s why.
Check out Fremocentrist’s post on the event for more details on why you should attend.
Following the lighting, stick around town because the Fremont Friday Art Walk will officially be under way. Between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., some of your favorite stores, restaurants, hang-outs and coffee shops will be featuring live music, art, painting, videos, sculptures and a whole lot more. Check out the full list of participating places here along with what each of them is hosting.
The weather report calls for clouds with a chance of showers so be prepared. The events will go on rain or shine.
