Saturday: Christmas Fair in Ladera


The merchants at Ladera Country Shopping Center are carrying on the 21-year-old holiday tradition of hosting a Christmas Fair, and this year it will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4.

Patty Cullen with Konditorei says Santa will arrive on a fire truck at 11 a.m. and pose for photos at Konditorei as usual, but he will look a little different this year. The late Bill Lane helped out for decades, and now his son, Bobby, will be filling those boots, assisted by his wife.

Other highlights include Matt Ragno's "famous" eggnog at Bianchini's, kids painting pots and planting bulbs at the Garden Center, ornament-making at UPS, carolers at Round Table Pizza, and free eye tests at the new optometrist.

The shopping center is located at 3130 Alpine Road in Ladera.
