Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in down town Oakland for their 2nd annual winter festival. We enjoyed a great lunch at Englander’s to get out of the cold and saw one of our owners from the Swallow Falls Cabins. We then walked the streets and watched ice sculptors being made outside the local shops and saw Ray from Pleasant Valley Dream Rides giving free horse drawn sleigh rides.
The scupltors designed an ice castle for kids to slide down (our little guy was a little small for it) and a bowling lane made of ice. We also went over to the train station and took pictures with the trains and snowmen. They had local food vendors there as well, we spoke with Bryan from Jearbryo’s who had yummy crab cakes for sale! It was a great day and a lot of fun in downtown Oakland.
