Mark your calendar for the Festival of Lights

Submitted by The San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce

The San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the Island Lights Festival on Friday, Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m. This kickoff event for the Friday Harbor Winterfest is partnering with Island Rec and of course Santa Claus.

Our tree lighting will be a touch different this year and we will be resorting to how the Island Light Festival was years ago. This is due to the sad demise of the big tree in Memorial Park. The Town of Friday Harbor will make the shape of a tree with twinkling lights and the colors will coincide with the Noel sign, which is managed by the San Juan Island Lions Club.

It will be a fun-filled evening when all start gathering at 6:30 p.m .on Spring Street between 1st and Front Street to await the arrival of Santa. We will have caroling while sipping some hot chocolate and coffee while waiting for Santa to arrive to light the tree.

We will have more details soon but we wanted you to save the date!
