The carnival and vendor booths were enjoyed by families from all over the Peninsula in the morning, and the Children's Parade attracted hundreds in the afternoon.
Then, at 5:45pm, Redwood City truly twinkled and shined as the Tree Lighting festivities and fireworks spectacular brought a very successful 2012 Hometown Holidays Festival to a close.
