Christmas across the county: Camas

The city of Camas hosts their annual holiday tree lighting

CAMAS — It’s the most wonderful time of the year again in Clark County, and that means tree lightings, parades, hot cocoa, Santa visits, and Christmas light galore. 

Our second stop is Camas and their annual Holiday Tree Lighting. Hundreds of people turned out this year to watch as the city lit, well over its 100th tree.  

We hope you enjoy this virtual tour and from all of us at ClarkCountyToday.com, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you on the next one!

The crowd was momentarily worried after the tree lit up early and then late, but all was well and the firework show to follow was a crowd pleaser. Photo by Jacob Granneman
