The Night of 10,000 Lights returns to Old Town Bandon for its eighth year this Saturday, November 30th. Many of the traditional Christmas activities of the Night of 10,000 Lights will be continued that afternoon and evening.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will appear at Washed Ashore from 3 to 5 PM for pictures with the kids. As usual, local photographer Gary Edmiston will be providing those photos free of charge.
The traditional wine/nog walk will be returning as well. Glasses and maps will be available for purchase at Washed Ashore from 3 to 5 PM.
The wine/nog walk is all part of Small Business Saturday. Many merchants will be providing refreshments and activities, so drop on in to get an early start on your Christmas Shopping. Free shopping bags, cookies and cider will be available where the glasses are sold at Washed Ashore. You can also join the carolers as they wander from store to store.
And back by popular demand is Shop Bandon from 11 am to 3 pm. $60 in receipts from purchases made during Shop Bandon can be redeemed at the Visitors Center for a free holiday gift.
This year’s Christmas tree lighting is scheduled for 5:30 PM with Wild Rivers Coast Alliance executive director Jim Seeley having the honor of lighting the tree.
Further details will be forthcoming. And do not forget to mark your calendars now for the Christmas Lights Parade on December 14th at 5:30.
