City of Washougal kicks off the holiday season with the Lighted Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting on Thursday, December 2. Stop by early at 5 p.m. for photos with Santa. Starting at 6 p.m., the parade will run along Main Street culminating with the tree lighting ceremony in Reflection Plaza. For those unable to attend, the event will be livestreamed on the City’s Facebook page (https://facebook.com/WashougalGov).

The City is accepting applications from local businesses, organizations, and community groups to participate in the parade. Entry is free and all floats or groups must be lighted in some fashion. Awards will be given for Best Use of Lights, Best Use of Music and Santa’s Choice. Applications are due by Monday, November 29 and can be found at City Hall and online at http://www.cityofwashougal.us/ParadeApplication

“Entries include local clubs, businesses, organizations and others throughout the community,” said Rose Jewell, Community Engagement Manager and parade organizer. “Being a part of the parade is a wonderful way to let people know about your group and show support for our community. Enjoy the festivities with family and friends in Washougal’s downtown living room.” 

During and after the parade, the City is serving complimentary cookies and hot cocoa. Entertainment will include performances from the Washougal High School band and choir. 

Santa Claus is always the very special guest and will bring up the end of the parade. He will be passing out candy canes and will be available for photos with kids of all ages.

Other sponsors include Waste Connections, Riverview Community Bank and Washougal Coffee Company. 

“This community holiday event is a great way to get into the spirit of the season!” Jewell added. “I hope everyone will come and join us after missing out last year!”
