The Downtown Bend News arrived in my inbox today and contains two upcoming Christmas events that you might be wondering about.
- First, the Holiday Tree Lighting is on November 26th, the day after Thanksgiving: taking place on the corner of Greenwood and Wall from 5:45 until 7:15, there will be local music and dance performances and Santa will light the tree at 6:50. Wall Street will be closed from Greenwood to Oregon Avenue, and Newport Avenue will be closed from NW 3rd to Wall.
- Then a week and a day later, the Bend Christmas Parade starts at noon on Saturday, December 4th—always a good time. The parade route starts on Newport at Harmon, crosses the river to Wall, then follows Franklin/Riverside back across the river.
