Visit the North Cascades

The North Cascades Highway (SR 20) reopened for the season on May 5, giving us the ability to once again enjoy the breath-taking vistas and recreational opportunities found along this scenic byway.  If you go, expect that some Forest Service and National Park facilities may remain closed; travelers should plan for minimal services along the way.  Those interested in back country recreation are strongly advised to consult the Northwest Avalanche Center for current avalanche conditions.

Looking Back at 2020
Holiday Lane
took place December 2020 and featured a decorating contest just like in the 60s, with the special attraction of seeing Santa make his annual appearance. Santa and Mrs. Claus greeted visitors at the brightly lit Town Tree, located near the old fire hall on Main Street. Please see video below and photo of the Town Tree 2020 after its lighting on November 29.

A Drive-Through Celebration
We were thrilled to see so many of you drive through town  to enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays from the comfort of your car. This event was a safe way to visit Santa and his friends, without any fear of spreading germs. More than 50 kids dropped off  letters to Santa and the gnomes and elves (plus Olaf and the Grinch) had a great time sharing Christmas cheer.

After seeing Santa, hundreds enjoyed the many decorated homes  businesses, churches and organizations that entered the Holiday Lane decorating contest.
