Maple Valley Hometown Holidays Annual Community Event Thursday, December 1st 6:00-8:30 p.m. At 4 Corners
The air is crisp and the night is clear. Perhaps a little snow starts to fall, as the Rainier Youth Choir sing some familiar tunes. At the count down, the lights come on, and the beautiful official tree is lit! It’s sure to be a magical beginning to the holiday season and it happens all throughout the 4 Corners shopping area. The City of Maple Valley event, presented by Fred Meyer and Johnsons Home & Garden, begins at 6:00 p.m. with the Mayor’s public welcome and Tree Lighting Ceremony beginning at 6:30 followed by a wide variety of fun activities featured throughout the area. Enjoy the Rainier Youth Choir, the Maple Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra, crafts, hot chocolate and cookies, and the festive charm of an old-fashioned Holiday. Activity booths abound for the kiddies, fun photo opportunities, including with Santa himself at Fire Station 80 and don’t miss the ever-popular train and trolley rides, with new additions of live reindeer, the Xtreme Snowboard simulator, the Elf balloon artist and facepainting.
