Annual Holiday Tree Lighting November 26th

Take in the crisp start of winter at the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting in Historic Snoqualmie. In Railroad Park, enjoy carolers, a tree-xmaslocal choir, hot cocoa, cider, and cookies. There will be horse and carriage rides for singing through the streets of Snoqualmie.

Come early to begin your holiday shopping at local stores. Downtown stores and restaurants will have complimentary appetizers, beverages, live music, door prizes, kids’ activities, and shopping specials.

At 6:3oPM sharp, Santa will arrive and flip the switch to light up the tree! Then kids can visit with Santa and have their picture taken.

New this year! Kids can bring letter to send to Santa and pop it in a special holiday mailbox going straight to the North Pole.
