Here's a little list of some not so naughty and almost all nice things going on around town that I thought you should know (in chronological order):
Nov 29: Kirkland Winterfest 2-6pm @ Marina Park
An annual tradition! There will be pedestrian traffic ONLY from 10am-8pm this day in the downtown core. The tree lighting is at 5pm and there will also be caroling, bonfires, games, carriage rides, kids activities, Santa's arrival, the Argosy Christmas ship, a Seahawks viewing party, food and refreshments throughout the evening. FREE. Check the Winterfest Facebook page for updates.
Nov 29-Jan 10th. Seahawks House Lighted Display
They're Baaaaaack! This home in the Kirkland Highlands neighborhood ( 11217 NE 100th St ) is worth the visit. Swing by Sun-Thurs 5-9pm or Sat/Sun 5-10:30. Donations for Hopelink and Toys for Tots are welcomed.
Look for special offers throughout the season. Shops will be open until 8pm or later. "Small Business Shopping Day " is November 28th. Get out there and buy local!
Get ready for an evening of caroling, hot cocoa, magical ‘snow,’ and the first-ever musical holiday lights on the new Cross Kirkland Corridor! The festivities start at 5 p.m., and at 5:30 p.m. Mayor Amy Walen will flip the switch to illuminate the CKC with 10,000 LED lights custom-programmed to favorite holiday music by Google Kirkland engineers. Carolers from Lakeview Elementary School and Google will perform prior to the countdown, and complementary hot chocolate will be served. Donations of food for Hopelink and toys for LifeWire will be accepted. Parking is limited, so try to take public transportation, bike or walk to the show at the Family Fitness and Play Area on the Cross Kirkland Corridor near the Google campus (Approximate address is 499 7th Ave S, Kirkland, WA 98033).
Dec 12th 5-8pm :Santa Parties at George's
