Casa Linda Plaza is officially in on the mobile-restaurant craze.

On the first Friday of each month from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. ssahmBBQ, crazy fish and my cupcake garden (capitalization apparently is passé in food truck branding) trucks, and such, converge in front of Natural Grocers.

Also this week at Casa Linda Plaza is the annual holiday tree-lighting ceremony.

Wednesday, Nov. 28, Santa and his reindeers will be in attendance near El Fenix from 5-7 p.m. posing for pics with the kids for a $5 donation to For the Love of the Lake, the longstanding Casa Linda Plaza-based organization that supports White Rock Lake.

Choirs from Reinhardt, Hexter, Sanger and Bryan Adams will perform.
