2013 Plaid Friday: Santas Village, Bar Crawl & Indie Shopping | OaklandPlaid Friday on Friday, November 29, 2013 is the fun, indie alternative to the big box store “Black Friday,” designed to promote local and independently owned businesses during the holiday shopping season.

There will be a festival and Santa’s Village in Latham Square (Broadway and Telegraph) featuring live music, kids’ activities and of course, deals and specials galore all over downtown Oakland.

In 2013, you can drink while you shop with 10 bars with 20+ pop-up vendors, drink specials, and prizes throughout downtown.

Don’t miss a special Bandaloop aerial performance and holiday projections from 6-10 pm on The Great Wall of Oakland (West Grand Avenue between Broadway and Village St).

Also, check out Oakland Grown‘s list of participating businesses by neighborhood. Leave the car at home and hop on the Free B shuttle that runs down Broadway and will take you from bar to shop and back to bar again safely. Or pick up the East Bay Bike Coalition’s special bike crawl shopping guide and ride around downtown.
