Port Orchard - The little city with the big Christmas spirit!
The Festival of Chimes & Lights kicks off the holiday season with an abundance of fun and beauty for all ages. Be dazzled with all the lights including the giant Christmas tree in front of City Hall, the decorated boats in the harbor and all the shops lit up along the way.
Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on a fire truck, hay rides run throughout, choirs sing, pets compete in the Pooch n' Purr Parade and families are entertained with activities ranging from crafts and stories in the library to cookie decorating at the bakery.
Included is The Jingle Bell Run/Walk, a benefit for the Arthritis Foundation, with costumed participants ranging from the serious runner to friends chatting as they stroll the 5K route.
Free treats, free activities and memories made for a lifetime. You won't want to miss it; mark your calendars now!
