    The festive Candlelight Christmas in the Harbor weekend kicks off with Holiday Hayrides with Santa on Friday and Saturday, December 11th and 12th, loading at Timberland Bank on Judson Street from 4:30- 7:30. Refreshments will be served by the friendly Timberland Bank staff in the lobby.  Be sure to dress warmly as the long range forecast just may include snow!

    The annual Gig Harbor Yacht Club’s Lighted Boat Parade will take place on Saturday December 12th at 5 pm. Everyone is encouraged to come enjoy the sights and maybe even make dinner reservations at a waterfront restaurant to ensure a good viewing point for this popular event.

    “Hark the Harbor” on Sunday, December 13, is a fun family event where you can join in community caroling while awaiting the arrival of the Argosy Christmas Ship. This is the 6th year the Downtown Waterfront Alliance has sponsored this event which starts at 5:45 pm at the Pavilion in Skansie Brothers Park . Sharon Stearnes, former staff organist for Tacoma Pizza and Pipes and the Seattle Mariners, is a wonderful family oriented entertainer who will lead the singing of traditional and contemporary carols. The Waterfront Alliance will provide songbooks and candles. In spite of it being his busy time of the year, you might even find Santa Claus joining in the fun. At 6:35 the caroling will end as the Argosy Christmas Ship makes its appearance, all aglow in festive lights. The Olympia Youth Choir – Cantabile will be on board to perform for your listening pleasure.

    All through the month people can come downtown and enjoy the fifth year of the “Deck the Harbor-Window Decorating Contest”. Enjoy the talents and creativity of downtown waterfront businesses as windows are transformed into beautiful and holiday-inspired works of art. You may vote for your favorite window through December 31st.

    All this and more will fill December with the joys of the holidays. Ladies are reminded to bring your Girls Night Out event program with you when you visit the waterfront and use the “come back and shop” coupons for your holiday shopping.
