These festooned holiday-inspired homes are all part of the Vine Street Victorian Showcase that delights children, adults and families of all ages.

Join the party on December 14 at 6:00 p.m. for a multi-block holiday celebration on Vine Street in Paso Robles that includes a night of live holiday music, caroling, cookies and hot chocolate, and endless holiday festivities.

ScroogeAlong with the pretty lights and activities on the street, one of the main attractions is Ebenezer Scrooge who lives at the corner of 14th and Vine Streets. He is known to come out of his house yelling at attendees to stop all holiday cheer and leave him alone. His grouchy routine is a highlight of the night, leaving the crowd, especially the children, filled with laughter as they shout "Happy Holidays!" and "We love you!" to the confirmed humbug.

Come experience one of the longest-running holiday traditions in Paso Robles, the unforgettable Vine Street Victorian Showcase.
