This festival is free, but requires you to sign up and bring an unwrapped toy for their fundraiser. The fundraiser benefits Toys for Tots, a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. Childcare is available, but one must sign up for it at www.yogaalameda.com. For more information, contact Yoga Alameda at (510) 263 8700.
