Be A Participating Business In The Bothell Tree Lighting Festival Downtown!
Sunday December 3
4:30 - 7:00 PM
Main Street Bothell

The Tree Lighting Festival on Main Street will be three years old on Sunday, December 3.  Main Street between 101st and 102nd will be closed...and walkable, we're told.  Last year approximately 2,500 visitors watched as Santa arrived in a fire truck and lit the tree.
  
During the festival, many storefronts offer activities and/or giveaways out of their doors.  But other businesses and organizations set up canopies and join in the spirit of giving.  You are invited to join in the fun.  We're even spilling out onto Main Place (north of the Main Street businesses).  Here are the guidelines:
* Provide an activity or give-away...family oriented.  These are FREE.
* It's all about the holiday spirit and giving.
* No business should be conducted or business leads collected; offering business cards is fine.  Each business or group is identified on the activities map that is handed out and will also be available online.
* Set up by about 4:30 PM; event concludes at approximately 7:00 PM.
  
Check out their website to see what has happened in years past, then let Nancy Pipinich or Susan Gardner ( sgardner3@mindspring.com) know if you want to participate.
