Castle Rock is truly shining bright this holiday season, and they'd love to have you be a part of the celebration! Join them for a Truly Unique Northwest Christmas on November 28, and again on December 12.
On November 28, the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce is proud to present Small Business Saturday festivities. Throughout town, shoppers will enjoy great holiday discounts at retailers and restaurants that are sure to tickle anyone's tinsel. You can also check out a festive holiday bazaar at the old Exhibit Hall (147 Front Ave NW) for quality shopping options for every name on your Nice List!
Head outside at 5pm for the tree lighting celebration, on Cowlitz Street near the Post Office. Cozy up to festive outdoor fires and enjoy the sounds of caroling and live music throughout the streets.
Make sure to hitch up your sleigh and head on back December 12 for even more holiday cheer. Free pictures with Santa, courtesy of Bell Studios, will be available starting at 4:30 in the old Exhibit Hall. At 5:00, don your ugliest sweater for the March of the Ugly Christmas Sweaters contest. The winner will get to flip the switch and light the big tree at 5:30pm. Stick around for the hometown holiday parade and more festive fun immediately following the tree lighting!
If you find yourself with a few last-minute names on your list, or if you'd like to treat yourself, they've got you covered! Following the parade, they will draw winners for many fabulous raffle prizes that have been donated by local businesses (must be present to win). Visit Luttrell's Five & Dime, Touch of Wheatlands Produce & More, Greener Futures Electric and The Knotty Hooker to get your tickets!
