Head to downtown Issaquah for holiday cheer
November 27, 2012
Downtown merchants invite the public to head to Front Street North for some holiday cheer Dec. 5, as the Downtown Issaquah Association hosts a holiday open house.
The event runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the historic Hailstone Feed Store, 232 Front St. N., and other locations downtown.
Participants can listen to children sing Christmas carols and a performance from Violet Oroboros. Sip hot chocolate, coffee and tea, and then meet Santa Claus and a reindeer. Santa is available for free family photographs, too.
The organization is also hosting a cookie sale and raffle for prizes donated by local merchants and restaurateurs. The raffle benefits Eastside Baby Corner, a nonprofit social services organization based in Issaquah.
Other activities during the holiday open house include free printmaking to create holiday greeting cards at Museo Art Academy , 111 Front St. N., glassblowing demonstrations at artbyfire, 195 Front St. N., and a small works exhibition at the artEAST Up Front Art Center, 95 Front St. N.
