The holidays are going to be bigger and better this year at The Streets of Brentwood! While the traditional, popular events will remain available to the public, new additions are going to take family fun to a whole new level, giving both adults and children the opportunity to get out of the house and have a blast.
Beginning November 18 and continuing through the end of December, The Streets of Brentwood will host Winter Blast, a fun-filled, family friendly lineup of holiday activities.
This year’s main attraction is the Big Chill, a 10,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor ice skating rink. Along with the area for skating there will be Polar Plunge Ice Slides: one 200 feet long for the adventurous and one 75 feet long for younger children. The larger slide will be 12 feet wide with the option of riding down four people at a time in a raft so your entire family is together, or individually in a tube with the option to race your friends.
The Big Chill will also provide a 3,200 square-foot Ice Lodge with upscale furniture, fire tables and heat lamps for those who want to take a break from the activities. There will be light and sound shows, live music on Saturdays, and rentable indoor party rooms with a 60-person capacity for everything from birthday parties to corporate meetings.
On the weekends, Foodie Crew Food Trucks will go hand-in-hand with the Big Chill, offering a wide selection of food options to fuel the fun.
“We look forward to this special event, as the citizens of Brentwood have been wanting an ice rink to come back to the city for several years,” said The Streets of Brentwood General Manager Mike Jones. “This event will offer our customers and guests a unique opportunity, as this will be one of the largest shopping center ice skating venues in the Bay Area. I would love for this to become a yearly tradition in Brentwood, whether that is here at the Streets or somewhere else in the city.”
In addition to the new ice skating rink, The Streets of Brentwood will also be hosting their annual traditions such as the tree lighting ceremony, weekend carolers, hay rides, a Christmas tree lot, Foodie Crew for the foodies, fun with the Tumble Time Xpress Mobile Playground, and of course, photos with Santa.
On specific days, there will be special Santa photo opportunities, including a Breakfast with Santa event for children with disabilities, and Pet Picture Day for taking Santa photos with your pet(s).
Both events are for a one-time, two-hour period. This year’s festivities will also include a tree decorating contest for local elementary schools. Students will be provided with a Christmas tree and lights; however, they must bring their own handmade ornaments to make a unique holiday creation.
The decorating will take place on November 19, and winners will be announced at the tree lighting ceremony on November 25. First, second, and third place winners will receive gift cards for their classroom.
