Join the Hot Cocoa Crawl in Downtown Alameda

Hot Cocoa Crawl for kids and families

Don your favorite holiday sweater, grab your friends and family, and join our Mayor and Santa himself at Alameda’s tree lighting ceremony in front of City Hall on Saturday, December 7. All the festivities and live performances begin at 4:00pm with the popular Hot Cocoa Crawl immediately afterwards.

Stop at participating businesses for delicious hot beverages and special promotions. Sample hot cocoa, complimentary hot cider, a hot cocoa bar with all the toppings, free milk and cookies, and so much more. All ages welcome.

To locate each of the 21 Hot Cocoa Crawl locations and view delicious offerings, access the interactive map on the Downtown Alameda website using a computer or your phone: www.DowntownAlameda.com/holidays#cocoa
