West Seattle Junction Hometown Holidays: New for this year’s tree lighting – street closure!

The updated-daily WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide includes a full list of what’s happening for WS Junction Hometown Holidays this year (we’re again among the co-sponsors), and there’s something new: On tree-lighting night – Saturday, December 5th – SW Alaska will be closed in front of Junction Plaza Park, so you’ll have more room to gather around the tree and park to enjoy the ceremony! It’s been elbow-to-elbow for years now, and the park itself is fairly small, so this is a big move to make room for more people to join the fun. Music, caroling, and more – full schedule TBA – 5 pm on the 5th. Also this year, that same night will bring a rolling Holiday Party at Junction stores, 4 pm-8 pm, with sips and snacks and specials all around, so come prepared for shopping and fun before and after the tree lighting.

    This is great! Now that there will be more room, perhaps that holiday night market will make a comeback, too. I really enjoyed it back in, what, 2011?

    That would be an excellent idea to have holiday night market especially when the weather is good. Nothing beats hot cider, cookies, chocolate and Christmas knick knacks to capture the Holiday spirit which we all need especially with all the world events happening around us.

    This year, Whole Foods will be back with hot beverages and cookies. And we’ll have a few bonfires in the street to keep warm by!

    Yay!!!! So happy whole foods will be back, my boys loved the hot chocolate last year!

    Just checked the junction hometown holidays page and I don’t see the Mule drawn carriage rides. Are those not happening this year? My kids favorite!

      Unfortunately, they had a schedule conflict this year, as we understand it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
