On Friday, Petaluma Readers’ Theater presents Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory,” one of the writer’s earlier works. Never been to a readers’ theater? Brace yourself. There’s no stage, no costumes, no music, only the simple joy of listening to a story and letting the images come to life in our own mind. 8:30pm. Also runs Saturday evening and Sunday 2pm. $12
Also on Friday, it’s Light Up a Life, an evening of music, inspiration and remembrance during the holiday season. See the Christmas tree in Center Park (across from McNear’s) lit up and honor loved ones who have passed.
On Saturday, downtown art galleries host an Art Walk from 5 - 8pm. Check out new and existing artists and find a unique piece of art for your home or a gift. Participating galleries include Calabi Gallery, Gallery One, Riverfront Art Gallery and Art Without Labels.
At 6pm, make sure you’re at the Turning Basin to see the Holiday Lighted Boat Parade. Boats aglow with colored lights and holiday decorations start from the Petaluma Marina at dusk to sail into the Historic Downtown Harbor against the darkening sky.
Miss the procession? Don’t worry. The lighted boats remain on view all night long in the Turning Basin.
If comedy is your thing, head to the Rocks for its monthly comedy night, starring Ryan Budds. Budds has appeared on such TV shows as Bones, Rules of Engagement and Parks and Recreation. $10. 146 Kentucky St.
