City of Kelso Annual Tree Lighting Festival Features Family Fun and Santa at Train Depot.  

The City of Kelso’s Annual Tree Lighting Festival will light up Downtown Kelso for the holidays on Friday, December 2nd from 6:00 – 9:00pm at the Kelso Train Depot.  This year’s theme is “Christmas in Toyland” and headlines another year of music, games, and festivities for the whole family.

Kelso Mayor David Futcher will light the Christmas Tree sitting atop the Train Depot’s clock tower at 6:10 p.m. (courtesy of Campbell Crane). The evening will include Christmas music, refreshments, games along with prizes, crafts, face painting, a hayride, and cookie decorating.   Additionally, Santa Claus will make a special pre-Christmas visit early in the evening to tidy up his list of Kelso’s naughty and nice.

Come join in the fun and help celebrate the commencement of the Christmas season in Kelso, Washington.
