The public is invited to turn out Saturday for a tree-lighting event on the front lawn of Enumclaw City Hall.

Those attending will be treated to holiday carolers, hot chocolate and candy canes.

The tree lighting helps culminate a festive day in which downtown merchants will be showing off their “holiday jingle” spirit in the form of brightly-decorated storefronts.

Merchants have been decorating with a “jingle” theme, competing against their fellow businesses. Winners will be announced at the start of the annual Christmas parade on Dec. 6 and will receive an official “holiday jingle” trophy.

Participating businesses are encouraged to make the 29th a “sparkly” Small Business Saturday by having their storefronts decorated and remaining open until 6 p.m. so residents can shop and admire the festive decorations.

The “holiday jingle” emphasis is an effort of the new Live Local 98022 organization, created to help stimulate local shopping.
