This Saturday, December 10 from 5 to 6 p.m., there will be several street closures for the Wahkiakum Lighted Christmas Parade. From SR 4, roads will be closed at Main Street, Chester Street and Una Ave. Traffic to the ferry and Puget Island will detour from Columbia Street to Front Street for the hour closure. Streets will also be closed at Main and Broadway and 2nd Street at Una Ave.
The parade will start at 5 p.m. heading east on 3rd Street by the marina, turning south on Chester Street, then south down Main Street, west on Broadway, and then head back to the marina north on River Street, turning west on 3rd Street.
It may be raining, so bundle up and bring your umbrella to the marina or downtown Cathlamet to watch the lights in motion. Or stay dry watching the parade from your car. Parking in town will be allowed, just remember that for everyone’s safety the streets will be closed for the parade so you will need to be in place by 4:45 p.m., and you will not be able to move your car until after the parade is over. Let’s have a fun and safe parade this year.
Entries for the parade should be at the marina to line up at 4:30 p.m. The trophy for best entry will be presented at River Mile 38 after the parade. The Wahkiakum Lighted Christmas Parade is hosted by the Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce.
