Friday Harbor Island Lights Fest: Carols, tree lighting, and Santa

Breaking with tradition, the weather cooperated for the Island Lights Fest in Friday Harbor and everyone stayed dry. Dozens of islanders gathered on Spring Street in front of Memorial Park.  Kira Sable led the crowd in singing familiar Christmas carols including "Here Comes Santa Claus". And right on cue, Santa showed up, counted down from five, and the lights on the two elms in Memorial Park glowed. Mrs. Claus handed out candy canes to excited children.

Friday Harbor Elementary School students marched from their school down to Spring Street showing off their colorful costumes to the townsfolk.

There were plenty of princesses, Super Heroes, sports figures, candy, hot dogs and all kinds of animals.
