Holiday lighting festival set for Saturday
November 26, 2020
The annual Winter Festival and Tree Lighting Ceremony is set for this Saturday, November 28 in downtown Cathlamet.
Santa Claus will be at the Community Center from 3–6:30 p.m. and small family groups are welcome to stop by and say hello from the outside alcove. Because of covid-19, there will be no sitting on Santa’s lap this year, but the little ones are still welcome to talk to him, get a picture, and leave a Christmas list in the North Pole mailbox, which will be stationed nearby.
He will arrive in Cathlamet by fire truck, and he will be wearing a mask.
The Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce will be in front of their office handing out goody bags containing do-it-yourself ornaments and candy canes for the kids. They will be offering a visual scavenger hunt as well.
The tree will be lit at 4:30 p.m. in front of the Wahkiakum County Courthouse. Lance Jensen at Finder’s Keepers Antiques is holding a raffle and will announce the winner.
There will be music but no choirs or performers this year.
