Theater of Lights in Old Sacramento

Posted by docrocks on December 6, 2011

For the third year in a row Old Sacramento is the hometown holiday headquarters for the greater Sacramento region. With major holiday attractions like The Polar Express and the Raley’s Theatre of Lights, a visit to Old Sacramento is quickly jumping to the forefront on many resident’s lists of “must do’s” during the holidays.

Before hitting the lights make sure you head over to visit us at the River City Saloon.

For its third year producing this live staging of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, the Old Sacramento Business Association announces a new presenting sponsor – Raley’s Family of Stores.

“I can’t be prouder to have Raley’s support for Theatre of Lights”; said Chris McSwain of the OSBA.  “In Old Sacramento we celebrate the history of our region and obviously Raley’s is an important part of the history.”

“We are excited to be part of such a wonderful community event,” said Jennifer Teel-Wolter, Raley’s Community Relations Manager. “The Theatre of Lights is a magical way for families to celebrate the holiday season.”

Raley’s Theatre of Lights mixes the historic charm of Old Sacramento with cutting edge sound and lighting technology to create a truly unique holiday experience for visitors from all over.

You might need a drink or a Sarsaparilla for the kids at The River City Saloon before getting into the crowds.

About 50,000 guests from all over Northern California enjoyed the holiday magic of Old Sacramento’s Theatre of Lights last year. “Raley’s Theatre of Lights is at the center of Old Sacramento’s complete holiday experience — from shopping and celebrating to giving to loved ones and to charity,” McSwain said. “Old Sacramento gives guests something that’s hard to find anywhere else in Northern California, historic holiday nostalgia.” Old Sacramento ‘tis the location for visitors to get all their shopping done and more.

From the Gold Rush to the mid-1960’s when this first historic district in the West was created, its prime waterfront location has become a unique, one of a kind shopping experience that can’t be found anywhere else in the region. With over 100 shops and 53 historic buildings, Old Sacramento is bringing traditional holiday cheer to this national historic landmark with this annual event, not only for locals, but for the entire region. Whether visitors come for an hour or a long weekend, Old Sacramento has plenty of historic landmarks, museums, entertainment, and shopping, providing something for everyone.
