Visit downtown Edmonds Saturday, Nov. 30 for the free annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce. There will be caroling and a visit from Santa, followed by the lighting of the community tree. The location is Centennial Plaza — corner of 5th Avenue North and Bell Street.
Opening music is performed by Maplewood Jazz Band, as in years past; Holiday sing-along carols will be sung and led by North Sound Church’s Choir; and the Children’s Choir of North Sound Church performs. Deborah Brandi, executive director of the Foundation for the Edmonds School District, will emcee this year. From 5:15-7pm, Santa will be at the Masonic Lodge for pictures.
