Plateau holiday festivities are right around the corner.

Bonney Lake’s annual tree lighting ceremony and holiday concert performance is scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Public Safety Building on Veterans Memorial Drive.

After the tree lighting, there will be additional activities and refreshments, including an opportunity to grab a photo with Santa.

And as always, the Kiwanis Club of Bonney Lake and the city’s Arts Commissions’ gingerbread house contest will be a main feature.

A contest form can be downloaded on the city’s events webpage (or picked up at the Bonney Lake library or the Justice and Municipal Building), and entries are due at the Public Safety Building either between 3 and 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1 or the following day by 1 p.m.

There are four divisions for the contest — the children division, the teen division, adult division and the team/family division.

Winners in each category will win a $75 cash prize.

All those attending the tree lighting ceremony are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations to be dropped off at the Bonney Lake Food Bank next door.

HOLIDAY PARADES

Sumner’s annual holiday parade will be marching down Main Street, starting at 3 p.m. Dec. 2.

The parade starts at Sumner High School and travels to Heritage Park, and will feature carolers, floats, and of course, ol’ Saint Nick himself.

FESTIVE BREAKFASTS

The Greater Bonney Lake Historical Society is hosting a breakfast with Santa from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Bonney Lake Applebee’s. Tickets to the breakfast are $10.

East Pierce Fire and Rescue is also hosting a breakfast on the same day at the 800 Harrison Street station in Sumner.

Tickets to the fire department breakfast are $3, which goes on from 7 a.m. to noon.
