Holiday Happenings & Bazaar Weekend
Updated 02 Dec 2015
It's cold and snowy, the town is looking festive with wreaths, lights, garland, and those big ol' lit-up blow-up decorations are popping up around the valley. In other words, “it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!”
There are a lot of fun things to do and ample options to shop at our local businesses and during Bazaar Weekend. You can harmonize with Sunburst's old-fashioned holiday caroling on Wed., Dec. 2. Meet at Glacier Bank at 4pm and make a joyful sound serenading the town. Then there's the Parade of Lights through town on Fri. Dec 4th starting at 6:30pm (participants line up at Valley Pizza at 6:15). Afterward, Oh, What Fun you will have at the Tree Lighting at Glacier Bank pavilion. Live music by the VanBemmels, snacks, door prizes and, of course, our truly super Santa will all be there, from 7pm until it ends. Following the tree lighting you can join the annual “Lights of our Lives” memory walk along the Riverwalk. Luminaries are available at Eureka Health for you to decorate in honor of absent friends and loved ones.
AND if that's not enough....get ready for the shopping opportunity, Dec. 4 – 6, of Bazaar Weekend! The valley boasts 17 Holiday Bazaars this year from Riverstone Lodge to Trego. People plan their weekend around this and we make it easier by offering you the official Bazaar List and Maps. The guide is available through that link, in shops and restaurants around town, or at the bazaars. You'll find wonderful gifts for yourself and everyone on your list and it's a great day to visit with people that you may only see on Bazaar Weekend. Be sure to stop by the VFW to help them raise money for Coats & Toys for Kids.
We have recently updated the Bazaar map to add "WesDon Automotive Services Holiday Bazaar" information.
So bundle up and have a Holly Jolly Christmas Season!
