Sequim’s Home Town Holidays assembles an array of events and a fun cast of characters in downtown on Saturday, Nov. 27.
Coinciding with Small Business Saturday, the Sequim Merchant Group and Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce bring jolly, old Saint Nick, local royalty, musicians and more for local’s enjoyment starting at 1 p.m. at the northeast corner of Sequim Avenue and Washington Street.
The Sequim Community Orchestra begins playing at 1:30 p.m. by downtown’s Christmas tree as Santa and the Sequim Irrigation Festival royalty ride from the Sequim Village Shopping Center via a fire engine to the tree.
They’ll be available for photos from 2-4 p.m. as organizers note participants must take their own photos.
Sequim Community Church’s choir starts singing at 2:30 p.m. followed by the Olympic Peninsula Men’s Chorus at 3:30 p.m. Santa shares his singing chops at 4 p.m., when locals can begin to guess how many lights are on the tree for a chance at prizes.
At 4:45 p.m., co-organizers Captain-Crystal Stout and Emily Westcott light the tree and announce the contest winner.
Tractors begin rolling at 5 p.m. as part of the Sequim Museum and Arts’ Tractor Cruise from Sequim High School Parking lot at 601 N. Sequim Ave. to downtown and finally Mariner Cafe, 609 W. Washington St.
Hot cocoa and apple cider will be available throughout the day, and local Cub Scouts will offer wreaths for sale, too.
