Pick up a clue sheet from the Edward Jones office at 517 Front Street or download it from Facebook/HatsOffLynden, then head off on a quest to find 8 elves hiding in various downtown businesses. When you find a hidden elf, text the 4-digit code attached to his foot to: 360-207-0250. Participants may also follow Facebook/HatsOffLynden for clues during the game. Once all 8 codes are entered, the participant’s phone number will be entered to win the presents featured in the Hats Off window, courtesy of local Lynden merchants. It’s simple and fun. Cellphones are required to participate.
Meanwhile, the Lynden Pioneer Museum (217 Front Street.) hosts Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet from 2 to 3 p.m. spreading traditional Dutch holiday cheer! Bring the whole family for a brief storytelling and singing program, then the kids can visit Sinter. Don’t forget your camera!
Lynden’s beloved annual Lighted Christmas Parade will begin at 6 p.m. Each year, 8,000 to 10,000 visitors are treated to holiday carolers and a dazzling display of festively lighted trucks, cars, floats, wagons, farm equipment, and more! The 23rd annual procession begins at Fairway Center and travels along Front Street throughout downtown Lynden.
NEW! This year’s parade will end with a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony sponsored by PSE. The ceremony will be held at Front and 4th Street immediately at the end of the parade as the last entry reaches 4th street. The winner of the Elf on the Shelf scavenger hunt will be phoned immediately following the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. You need not be present to win.
From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, take a tour of the city’s unique light displays & decorated storefronts during Lynden in Lights, Nov. 28-Jan. 1. Larger-than-life Nativity sets, Dutch children, poinsettias, windmills, and more illuminate the city throughout the season for all to see.
