web page with more info and photos
The famous Christmas display by Sundar Shadi that marked
the holiday for years in El Cerrito is back, thanks to the El
Cerrito Soroptomists. The display is being shown from December
13th through the 26th, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on the hillside
on Moeser Lane near Arlington Boulevard. Since 1949, Mr. Sundar
Shadi had displayed upon his hillside a scene of Bethlehem from
a distance, with shepherds and sheep in the foreground. The display
included more than 120 handcrafted figures and drew thousands
of onlookers each winter for five decades. Mr. Shadi passed away
earlier this year at the age of 101.
