Snoqualmie’s annual Holiday Tree Lighting happens downtown on the evening of Saturday, Dec. 3.

Horse-drawn carriage rides and caroling will begin at 5:30 p.m. with stops at two locations: Railroad Park on King Street and the corner of Falls Avenue and River Street adjacent to Carmichael’s True Value.

Downtown will sparkle with holiday lights and wreaths. Stores will be open late for holiday shopping and merchants will have treats for the children.

Back at Railroad Park, warm up with hot cocoa, apple cider, and cookies and enjoy the sounds of the Sno-Valley Winds as they play traditional holiday music.

Santa will light up the holiday tree in the Railroad Park gazebo at 6:30 p.m. and you might even catch a glimpse of Rudolph! For the rest of the evening, children can visit with Santa in the gazebo. A photographer will take complimentary digital photos.

To join in the spirit of giving, bring non-perishable food items to contribute to the Encompass Respectful Giving Campaign, which will benefit local households in need during the holiday season.
