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.

For more information on individual events, will have specific days, times, and details available starting on November 1, 2017.



  1. DO NOT BUY PICTURE FRAMES FROM WINTER BLAST AT STREETS OF BRENTWOOD. We took our 2 boys for pictures first thing Friday morning. They still had the closed sign up at 10:15am and Santa was not even at his chair yet. It appeared that we we’re the first customers. We asked if they we’re open and they said , “Of course.” Boys took pictures and they have a lot of nice frames so we spent over $100 on frames and pictures. They lady was so nice and we spent the majority of the time after the pictures conversing with her and our 3yr old was playing with another boy who had gotten there after us. We lost track of time and so did the lady because she did not give us our receipt. We got home later and upon opening the frames found one had cracked glass. I took it back with our pictures as proof since we did not have a receipt. Initially the young man there said they would exchange it but upon opening the first 3 similar “Joy” frames, found they were ALL cracked. I dug through and finally found a good one. As we we’re about to finish, the manager called and the young man told her about exchanging the frames and us not getting a receipt but the manager said no exchanges without a receipt. So now I have to wait until my credit card charge goes through to print that out and I am returning everything I bought. Advice to anyone going there, check all your frames before you leave because obviously they do not care about the customer.
