It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Montesano. Holiday wreaths and dazzling, twinkling lights are starting to pop up everywhere in preparation for the annual Festival of Lights.
Highlights of the festival include singing Christmas carols, a Jingle Bell Jog, a Santa Pancake Breakfast, craft fair, scavenger hunt, Cocoa building stations, great food and vendors, and of course, a lighted holiday parade with floats, marching bands and logging trucks, fire engines and other vehicles bedazzled with thousands of colorful lights.
One favorite festival pastime is the lights display contest. It’s not just a chance for residents to rival each other for the best, brightest displays. Businesses have gotten in to the action, too. Great fun for the whole family!
