Holiday music, warm drinks, and a possible appearance from Santa will welcome guests
The Hockinson Community Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony returns for another season, with the lights to be turned on Friday night.
Hosted by the Hockinson Community Church, in collaboration with the Hockinson School District, and the Hockinson Main Street Team, the ceremony begins at 6 p.m. at the church, 15918 NE 182nd Ave.
“In a time when so many things work to divide us, I am so thankful to be a part of a community that works so hard to find common ground,” said Shaun Hart, pastor of Hockinson Community Church. “In this season of peace on earth and goodwill toward man, the importance of that commitment is brought to the forefront. How great it is that each year, the schools, businesses, and faith community work together to create a magical night for kids of all ages.”
The 20-foot holiday tree is a Grand Fir made possible by Thornton’s Treeland and local donors. The tree will be adorned with hundreds of lights. The Hockinson Middle School band will perform holiday music, and there will be an assortment of refreshments, including warm drinks provided by Hearth Coffee. Those drinks will be served by Fire District 3 cadets, who are raising money to buy equipment.
Rumor has it, Santa Claus might make an appearance, as well.
“Hockinson Community Church has been honored to host this event for the past three years and looks forward to many more,” Hart said.For more information, visit the Hockinson Main Street Team Facebook page or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
