Sequim all smiles at Hometown Holidays

Sequim residents enjoyed holiday entertainment, a chance to meet Santa Claus, a tree lighting ceremony, and a tractor parade at the Hometown Holidays event at Centennial Place in downtown Sequim on Nov. 25.

Shelli Robb-Kahler, Sequim-Dungeness Chamber of Commerce executive director, said more than 200 children met with Santa Claus and several hundred people showed up at the event’s tree lighting ceremony on Saturday evening.

Robb-Kahler said she thought the event was “hugely successful” with the weather holding out for the crowds and a lineup of children waiting to be greeted before Santa had arrived.

“I think we put a lot of smiles on faces on Saturday,” Robb-Kahler said.

The Chamber also passed out gift certificates and small coupons to businesses in town to encourage guests to shop locally for Small Business Saturday.
