Winter Wonderland 2022 on December 3rd – Postponed


Due to the (much needed) weather coming in Winter Wonderland at the Arnold Plaza has been postponed ❄️
This was a difficult decision as we know y’all are excited to catch Santa and sip some hot cocoa. Stayed tuned as we work with Santa’s busy schedule to try and nail down another date.
Stay Warm & Dry!

Join the Greater Arnold Business & Community Association (GABCA) on December 3rd to visit with Santa, get the kid’s pictures taken, enjoy hot chocolate & treats, and check out the businesses of Arnold Plaza from 5-7pm.

Arnold Plaza is home to Ebbetts Pass Sporting Goods, High Sierra Framing & Gallery, Linda’s Loft, Hinterhaus Distillery, and El Vaquero Authentic Mexican Food.

Linda’s Loft is sponsoring a Toy Drive with Toys from Aiyana.  Drop off your new, unwrapped toy or make a cash donation, and all proceeds will be donated to UC Davis and Sutter Memorial Pediatric Units in Sacramento. Drop-off bins are available in Linda’s Loft and will be available through the week of the Winter Wonderland event.
