The Official Blog for the City of Snohomish, WA
In celebration of the shortest day (or longest night depending on how you look at it), community members in Snohomish will gather together to walk along the riverfront among more than 500 white paper bag luminaries. This annual event is sponsored by the Yoga Circle Studio, and is in its sixth year.
The winter solstice marks the first day of winter when we say goodbye to fall, and hunker down to enjoy close quarters, crackling fireplaces and make plans for spring.
The Winter Solstice Candlelight Walk began in 2006 when a bad storm ripped though the region leaving behind floods, power outages and dark days.
“We thought it would be a lovely way to gather the community and provide light for the winter,” said Karen Guzak, event organizer.
This free event is a great way to make family memories, and check off some of the things on your Christmas list. Don’t forget to visit some of our new shops and restaurants like Queen Bee, The Hungry Pelican, The Hawthorne Public House and What’s in Store.
