The Candlelight Walk opens the Olde Golden Christmas season. Tonight we’ll have clear skies and a full moon!

To participate in the walk down the hill, meet at Foothills Art Center (15th and Washington) at 6 PM.  Foothills will have food and hot drinks and the opportunity to take photos with Santa Claus.  You’ll have the opportunity to purchase candles from the Golden Chamber or you can bring your own. Festive dress is encouraged.

The walk begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends in Parfet Park for the annual Christmas Showcase emceed by Ed Greene from Channel 4.  The climax of the show occurs when the Mayor flips a switch and all the trees along the creek, plus the big spruce at 10th and Washington, are illuminated.  After that, the crowd will spread out and visit the other events along the creek and on Washington Avenue.
