Tonight is the annual lighting of the Christmas tree in Downtown Bend, in Mirror Pond Plaza. That’s the big area next to the Mirror Pond Gallery behind the Breezeway and Bendistillery. It’s at 6:30, but I’d get there early—parking will likely be a zoo.
It’s also gonna be cold—it’s only 35 degrees right now, and Weather.com predicts it’ll be 25-28 degrees by that time.
Looking at the Downtowners Holiday Poster (PDF), there’s also going to be a chance to visit Santa and get $1 coffee and cocoa from Balay after the lighting. Otherwise, attending the lighting is free.
We may or may not be down there… the cold is dissuading me.
