This weekend, we took to the streets of Old Sacramento to enjoy a showing of “Theatre of Lights.”

The performance is a local history lesson — covering subjects such as the Lady Adams building + the raising of the city’s streets — intertwined with a special rendition of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” There are also a few surprise appearances by other popular holiday characters during the 30-minute show, which is done entirely from rooftops along K Street.

Showings run Thursday-Sunday at 6 p.m. + 7:30 p.m., with pre-show performances from local dance troupes and singers, as well as ASL interpretation on-hand.
