Get Out in Watsonville: Holiday Festivities

Take your kids swimming, to the snow or enjoy the holiday events around town this weekend.

The holiday season is hopping in Watsonville and there's a whole host of festive events this weekend. Or, if you're just looking for a fun activity with your kids, check out a couple chances to play in the pool or in the snow.

All-Comers Swim Meet

When/Where 4 p.m. Friday, , 27 Sudden St, Watsonville

Why Go: Kids ages 6-17 can participate in a casual swim meet at the YMCA so long as they can swim one lap in the pool. Everyone gets a certificate for participating.

Pricing: Free

When/Where: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, , 2601 E Lake Ave, Watsonville

Why Go: Crafts, gifts, antiques, collectibles, toys, wreaths and flowers will all be on sale. There will be tours of the model railroads and the Rodgers House. Parking is free.

Snow Day

When/Where: 3:30 p.m. Saturday, , Peck St & Union St, Watsonville
