Hometown Christmas Celebration

The lights shone bright as did the community spirit on December 5th, when Deer Park celebrated the lighting of our City Hall Christmas Tree.  

Kicking off the chilly evening was a Festival of Lights Parade: a line of cars, trucks, tractors, and bicycles decorated in Christmas lights. The line up of sparkling vehicles made their way up Main Street and ended at City Hall.  Among those gathered were our Miss Deer Park representatives, the Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor Tim Verzal.

Though some of the elements, such as hot cocoa and treats that were present last year were sadly missing this year, a strong community Christmas spirit was ever lingering. 

The Chamber is grateful to Dishman Dodge, one of their newest members, for donating and organizing the raffle of a 2001 Lexus.  The money gathered from the raffle will be used for downtown beautification projects throughout the year.  This winter, the Chamber has partnered with Avista to provide a festive sight along Main Street with holiday banners and decorations.  As summer arrives, the Chamber will update the decor to reflect the newest season.

Christmas Cavalcade

Youngsters and their parents began arriving at Legacy Farm and Stable early on December 19th to decorate horses. They came from a wide area over Stevens and Spokane counties. Once all 15 steeds had been decked in their festive best, the cavalcade (formal procession) departed the stable. Taking a route often used for the trail riding program at Legacy Farm and Stable, then crossing Highway 292, the group proceeded to Colville Road. There the caroling began. An advance team went ahead on an ATV to knock on doors and let people know the riders were coming. Many residents were excited to come stand outside in the cold and take pictures and sing along.
