From parades to bake sales, the Christmas season is a time when family and friends can walk the streets of Spokane, WA, to take in the sights and sounds of the holiday. Many of the Christmas events take place outside, but there are also fun activities for those who want to stay indoors and out of the cold air.
One of the popular movies during the holiday season is "White Christmas." The Spokane Civic Theater performs the movie each year for those who want to maintain a sense of nostalgia for the holiday. The Martin Woldson Theater also showcases various performances, such as "The Nutcracker." The Spokane Symphony performs holiday music from November to the end of December. The Holiday Wine Festival is a time when the wineries in the area gather together to display their favorite beverages. You can walk along the streets of town to the different wineries as many of them are located in one area. Families can ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the streets of Spokane in the weeks leading up to Christmas. There are special days when children can get their picture taken with Santa. Treats like hot chocolate and cookies are served as well.
After viewing the holiday lights or seeing a favorite theater performance, consider ice skating in downtown Spokane or taking part in the Jingle Bell Run. These are only a fe of the fun events that are held each year before and during the Christmas season.
