City Center Bishop Ranch has announced a unique collection of holiday experiences and promotions, each designed to bring new ways for everyone in the community to share this season's joys together. Whether it be an Indian Diwali celebration or grand opening event at Kristi Yamaguchi Holiday Ice Rink, City center has you covered with all your festive needs.

City Center Bishop Ranch will be celebrating Diwali this year with a Rangoli art experience, Indian-themed music and Bollywood dancers. The complex is also hosting an observance for residents on November 6th from 4pm to 7pm that day.

The opening of the Kristi Yamaguchi Ice Rink at City Center Bishop Ranch will take place on Wednesday, November 17th at 5:30PM. The event includes remarks by Yamagushi as she celebrates 25 years since founding the Always Dream Foundation, and an ice-skating performance to commemorate this milestone moment.

The ice rink will be open from 12:00pm to 9:30pm daily, with online reservations required for opening night in order to allow for safe distancing in the rink. Visit www.citycenterbishopranch.com/ice_rink_open/ for details.

City Center's 5 Days of Giving run from November 24 to 28th. Food donations are welcome at this event! Guests can make a contribution in the form of non-perishable food items that will benefit local charity Food Bank Contra Costa and Solano County's efforts. Collection bins will be set up throughout the center.

December will be an even more entertaining month with happy hours at select City Center restaurants. Every Wednesday night in December, you can enjoy live holiday music and specialty drinks from Fieldwork Brewing Company, Delarosa, Social-Affair, The Slanted Door, and The LOT. The Happy Hours begin at 5:30pm each Wednesday in December. Egg nog, spiked hot chocolate, and rum sparklers are all on the menu.

City Center Bishop Ranch has implemented enhanced health and safety measures that meet or exceed current public health guidance from Contra Costa County.

Topping off all the festivities will be a 40-foot holiday tree gracing the piazza in the middle of City Center. Last year the festivities were more subdued due to Covid-19, but this year much of the splendor and celebration is back, as holiday lockdowns are not expected in the Bay Area. The tree will feature thousands of holiday lights, and other holiday displays are planned in Alexander Square.

Come out to City Center, and enjoy safe and exciting holiday events, no matter what holidays your family celebrates.
