The 2020 Whatcom County Holiday and Christmas Events Guide will look a little different this year without some of our beloved local events like Christmas Tree Lightings and Parades. I'm as sad as you but we will do our best to include any and all local activities that will help us all get in the holiday spirit. The guide will still include pictures with Santa and where to see Christmas lights, local tree farms, winter break camps and more!

Keep checking back because we will continue to add events and activities throughout December. 

Happy Holidays! ~Megan
