Portola Christmas in Old Town event a success

The organizers of this years’ Christmas in Old Town event have proclaimed the exciting evening a success, despite the cancellation of the 2022 Light Parade due to severe winter weather. One and all are thanked for coming out despite the chilly temperatures to make merry with others in Portola, with 190 Golden Tickets given out for the toy drawing with kids receiving free gifts such as bikes, skateboards, scooters, tablets, basketballs and more.

Organizers wish to thank the many who helped bring the event to life and look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
