Everett ready for midweek Wintertide Celebration

December 9, 2012 by  

The Wintertide Celebration is an old time celebration of good will and festivities. The organizers of this festival probably used poster printing to spread the word about the event throughout the community. Designed as a family oriented celebration in the downtown area, it will fill the early evening hours with fun and projects.

During this family function, there will be a number of craft projects for the children to work on, as well as some face painting to adorn their cute little faces. There will also be a photo booth present for families to create some special seasonal memories. Around the toasty bonfire on the plaza, a medley of Christmas carols will be sung by young and old alike and there will be cookies, cocoa, and hot apple cider to enjoy and to keep participants warm. At 6:00 pm, the official tree lighting will take place and Santa will be on hand to visit and look over wish lists. At 6:30 pm, an animated viewing of the How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the 1966 version, will be shown for all to enjoy.

This event is free for everyone to come out and enjoy, while starting the holiday season off on a good note. Families are reminded to bring hats and mittens for the little ones. The Wintertide Celebration will be happening on Thursday, December 13, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Everett Performing Arts Center located at 2710 Wetmore Avenue in downtown Everett, Washington.
