Watch the Old Sacramento Waterfront district transform into a 19th Century winter wonderland at the annual Macy’s Theatre of Lights performances! But you better hurry, as there are only five nights left! This cherished local tradition allows thousands of spectators the free chance to watch a unique retelling of the American classic “Twas the Night Before Christmas” with performers standing on balconies and facades of the old buildings on K Street. “Discover how early pioneers experienced the calamities—and revelry—that befell the new city in the 1850s,” writes “The sounds of the fires, floods and parties will surround the audience as the 150-year-old building facades light up with color.” The last remaining performances of Theatre of Lights are scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 20 through Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24. There are two showings each night, 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., with the exception of Christmas Eve, which only has the early showing. Look for updates at
