Slideshow | Snoqualmie Valley holiday celebrations light up cold nights

Smiles from children of every age lit up cold nights during the Snoqualmie Valley’s community tree lighting ceremonies this month.

Bonfires crackled along a main street closed to traffic, but open to carolers and strollers, on Saturday, Dec. 10. North Bend held its Holiday Festival, which featured booths with Christmas-themed activities for children. Families roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, carolers performed and a friendly Valley Santa listened to holiday wishes.

Fall City, Carnation and Snoqualmie held their tree lighting ceremonies the weekend prior. Carnation’s event included a pancake breakfast and musical performances, while Fall City’s fun included a school songfest and march to the street to switch on the tree lights, followed by a full s’mores spread at Fall City Park.

Snoqualmie’s fun included Santa photos, wagon rides and a community band performance.

The fun continues this month with holiday teas at 2 p.m. every Saturday at The Salish Lodge, and an Alpen Folk concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17 at Mount Si High School.
