The Kent Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Kent are pleased to present the 2009 Festival of Lights in downtown Kent on December 5, 2009. This festival includes musical entertainment (Theodore Roosevelt Choir) that begins at 5:30 pm at the Home Savings Bank Plaza, followed at 6 pm with the arrival of Santa (by train no less). Families are encouraged to bring their kids and cameras for photos with St. Nick. There will be hot chocolate and doughnuts to keep kids of all ages nourished.
With all the new shops this year in and around Acorn Alley this is a great way to jump start your holiday shopping. Most of the merchants have agreed to open for extended hours during the festival so bring your credit cards and let’s hear sleigh bells and cash registers ringing.
If you can, please consider bringing a new toy to donate to the Kent Area Toy Drive which will go to deserving kids that find themselves in less fortunate circumstances this holiday season.
