Magical Morning is for the younger set, parade is fun for all

Enumclaw may very well be at the heart of the holiday universe Saturday, with morning and evening events scheduled to entertain children of all ages.

The day kicks off with the annul “Magical Morning,” sponsored by the Enumclaw Parks and Recreation Department. Visitors will find crafts, games, a catered breakfast, live holiday music by guitarist Scott Lindemuth and a visit from Santa Claus. The two-hour event begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Enumclaw Expo Center fieldhouse.

The cost is $5 per person at the door or $4 if registered by telephone by 5 p.m. Friday. Preregistration is preferred and attendance has been capped at 200. Photos with Santa will be available for purchase.

To register, call Parks and Recreation at 360-825-3594.

Saturday night will bring the traditional Christmas parade, an offering of the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce.

Crowds will again line Cole Street for the parade, which begins at 6 p.m. This year’s theme is “The Magic of Christmas.”

As always, the “Mile of Food” will be a parade entry. Those in charge of the traditional food drive ask that people deliver nonperishable goods to the chamber office on Cole Street during the day.

Just up the mountain a bit, the folks in Greenwater will display their holiday spirit with Greenwater Mountain Holidays.

The event is sponsored by the Greenwater Community Center, in conjunction with local merchants.

Festivities kickoff with a bazaar at the community center from noon to 5 p.m. Friday.

The bazaar continues from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. A Santa Shack is scheduled for the general store from noon to 5 p.m. At 5, staging begins at the community center for the parade. Caroling and the Parade in the Ranch will be from 5:30 to 6:30. The Enumclaw Middle School choir performs at 6:30 p.m., followed by the town’s Christmas tree lighting at 7.

Last year, organizers lit five trees.

An informal gathering is planned for the Naches Tavern after the event.

The bazaar, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Santa Shack, noon to 5 p.m., resumes Sunday.
