EL CERRITO –– One of the city’s biggest and fun events of the year –– putting up the Sundar Shadi Christmas display — came off again in fine style Dec. 10.
The display celebrates the holiday season and honors Shadi’s work as a benefactor to El Cerrito through his Christmas displays in winter and flower displays in summer, funding the Dorothy and Sundar Shadi History Room at City Hall, and sponsoring a U.N. Day in El Cerrito, among other works.
Volunteers carried the houses, shepherds, sheep and other figures in the display from cars that had brought them up to the hillside site on Moeser Lane from containers where they spend about 50 weeks out of the year.
El Cerrito Scout Troop 104 turned out a large contingent to help.
