Central Ave will be all a-glow in Historic Nob Hill as the Twinkle Light Parade rolls from Washington St. to Girard Blvd. starting at 5:15 p.m. The parade is comprised of local businesses, organizations, schools, families and community groups and all are competing for Best in Show.

The Swingles – Winter Tales: You’ve heard them on Sex and the City and Glee. The Swingles bring a unique sound to a capella music, invoking jazz, baroque, folk, and more. The Swingles’ unmistakable sound has long been associated with Christmas. What better way to get into the holiday spirit than with their songs of good cheer? Winter Tales mixes the group’s standard repertoire with seasonal specialties, including gorgeous and surprising arrangements of traditional carols, winter-themed originals, and nostalgic classics.
