Each year the Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate holds a memorable Christmas holiday celebration at this handsome 37 room mansion in the Oakland hills.  In keeping with the history of this home, an Edwardian holiday theme has been created so you can experience the Christmas of the period.  Each room will be decorated with holiday trees, festive decorations, garlands and antiques to truly put you into the mood of the season.  It will be held on December 13th and 14th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  

After your tour, there are a number of places to visit and browse.  You can have a lunch at the Winter Cafe, and, if you reserve a space ahead of time, you and your family can share a Morning Brunch With Santa, which also includes planned activities for the children and face painting. Perhaps take a carriage ride around the estate.  

During the day, there will be holiday music and entertainment to delight the family.  Groups performing will include the Oakland Symphony Orchestra, The Oakland Ballet Holiday Performance, The Dunsmuir Scottish Dancers, and the Puppet Company is performing  "A Time To Be Jolly", and you can put a smile on everyone's face watching the Tap Dancing Christmas Trees.  

There is a lot to do and see.  The address is 2960 Peralta Oaks Court.  For all the details:  DUNSMUIR HELLMAN HOLIDAY EVENTS.
