Livermore lights
Deacon Dave Rezendes' "Casa del Pomba" (House of the Dove) annual Christmas light display is in its 30th year. More than 30 volunteers have worked for months to get the 345,000 lights, trees, nativity and other structures in place. The free display at 352 Hillcrest Ave., Livermore, is open every night until New Year's. See www.casadelpomba.com for more.
