Description: Families can start a new Christmas tradition at Bates Nut Farm with the 5th annual “Christmas in the Valley”, presented as a gift to the community by Valley Center businesses, organizations, schools, churches and volunteers. Local non-profit Promote Valley Center is the sponsor. The event kicks off Friday evening, December 11th at 4:00. The evening's highlight will be the arrival of Santa by fire truck at 6:00, escorted into the farm by the Valley Center High School marching band. The Valley Center High School choir will lead the crowd in singing Christmas favorites. There will be live entertainment, the "Christmas Voice" singing contest, and a Polar Express Hay Ride to visit Santa, all free of charge.

Enjoy Christmas shopping at Bates, Farmer's Daughter, and with the vendors who will set up for the 2-day event. There will be plenty of unique gifts for each person on your gift list.

Many thanks to the numerous volunteers who have made this event possible including Promote Valley Center, Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians, San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians, the Valley Center Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Valley Center Princesses, Paul the Balloon Man, the Valley Center Lions, Rotary Club of Valley Center, Kiwanis Club of Valley Center, the Valley Center Optimist Club, Dos Valles Garden Club, and the Mountain Bike Association.
