Holiday lights and costumed characters took to the brightly lit streets of a historic downtown Paso Robles neighborhood Saturday night for the annual Vine Street Victorian Showcase.

The event, which saw warmer weather than in recent years, drew in locals and visitors to see 13 blocks of homes, businesses and schools featuring outdoor holiday festivities on Vine Street between Eighth and 21st streets. There was also free hot cider, coffee, popcorn, cookies, roasted chestnuts and candy canes given to passers-by.

Saturday marked the 24th year of the tradition known to locals as a community gift from the Vine Street neighbors, donors, businesses, the Paso Robles Area Historical Society, the City of Paso Robles and the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association.
