Slideshow | Snoqualmie Valley holiday celebrations light up cold nights
December 13, 2011 · 3:10 PM
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.
