Tree lightings set Friday in Tigard, Tualatin
(This story corrects a previous version with correct days and locations of the tree-lighting events.)
Tigard, Tualatin and Sherwood are all gearing up for their annual holiday events on Friday, Dec. 7.
Tigard residents are invited to gather in downtown for the annual Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony, which starts at 6:45 p.m. in the Rite Aid parking lot next to McDonald's restaurant.
Children and adults alike will have an opportunity to get photos taken with Santa, along with crafts, treats and other goodies after the tree-lighting is over.
Meanwhile, children who want to write a letter to Santa can do so and drop it in the official Santa mail box at Sherrie's Jewelry Box, 12425 S.W. Main St., where a group of Santa's elves will write a response to your child.
Also on Friday will be Tualatin's annual Starry Nights and Holiday Lights, presented by Comcast, which runs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Lake of the Commons, 8325 S.W. Nyberg St. The event, which includes the tree lighting, is a perennial favorite for Tualatin residents and kicks off the holiday season.
