Images of Bayiew's holiday spirit

Homes on Silver Terrace, linked with holiday spirit.

Fig tree at Quesada Gardens gets into the season with help from Meah, Ava, and a lot of their neighbors.

Band on Mendell Plaza plays as part of Winter Wonderland event.

Ice skating in Bayview?  Yup!

The line to sit on Santa's knee was long at times, but no one minded.

Olivia, Sophie, Teresa, and Lisa pause at the Bayview Merchants market at the Bayview Opera House.

Bayview youth serve up the eats.  Note Malik Seneferu's artwork in the background.

Antoinette Mobley dresses for the occasion, and for the upcoming 49ers game.

Santa's helper guards Santaland with a smile.

A pile of real snow, like the snow ball this youth is holding, was one of the most popular attractions again this year.

Barbara Ockel is about to leave for Germany, but not before bringing a traditional German-style market to Winter Wonderland.  Danielle Satinover, with the festive red bow, was taking a break from the popular snow pile she coordinated again this year.

Lyslynn LaCoste (BMagic) helps Winter Wonderland's emcee keep the spirit warm with a wave and smile.

The tree on Mendell Plaza was lit for the occasion.
Locals Jim Ansbro and Diego Sanchez enjoyed the Wonderland scene.

So were the holiday bell lights.

BMagic's holiday pot luck at the Southeast Community Facility was well attended by youth service providers and the community that loves them.
