Last updated 11/20/2018 at Noon
Live music performances and an appearance by Santa Claus will headline the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in downtown Edmonds Saturday, Nov. 24, in an event staged each year by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce.
The emcee of the event is Nick Allard of KIRO TV.
The ceremony at Centennial Plaza begins at 3 p.m. and ends with the lighting of the tree at 5:30. Kids can get their pictures taken with Santa after the ceremony.
Free photos with Santa Claus will be available from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Edmonds Masonic Lodge, 515 Dayton St.
As in past years, the chamber will collect clothing for Clothes for Kids, a local nonprofit group serving families in need, and food for the Foundation for the Edmonds School District’s “Nourishing Network” program.
The event will have a variety of local music performers, and public caroling also is encouraged.
There will be plenty of free treats: coffee, hot cocoa, hot cider, cookies, candy canes and more.
