"Mark your calendars everyone!

This year we will once again have a Christmas light cruise and gift exchange, coming up on December 14, in conjunction with Deutschland Drivers, B.L.T.N. VW Club, and the Golden Gate Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America.

This drive is primarily for Vintage Volkswagens. Other vehicles are welcome but we would like the aircooled VWs to be together in the front, and other vehicles in the back.

Start location and time will remain the same as last year:

We will meet at The Home Depot at 635 Capitol Expressway, in San Jose, right off of Hwy 87 near the auto mall.

There is a Starbucks there if anyone wants to grab coffee or a snack before we leave!.


We will depart from the start location and cruise through Willow Glen to check out some of the nicest decorated houses in San Jose! Cruise time will be around 1 hour. The final stop this year is still TBD, but we will enjoy a nice dinner and a gift exchange!

Participation in the gift exchange is of course completely optional, but to participate please bring a wrapped gift of ~$20 value.

Please save the date and stay tuned for more information!

Cruise route and final location for dinner/gift exchange will be posted prior to the event.

This is a family friendly event. Please be respectful of other people and vehicles or you will be asked to leave. "
