Clear skies helped Silverton light up in style at the annual tree lighting ceremony during December’s First Friday festivities; Seven Brides gave men an opportunity to shop for their significant others at the second annual Men’s Night Out; and kids made crafts at Silverton Together’s Celebration of Families.
Kris Kringle arrived in downtown Mount Angel on Dec. 4. After lighting the Christmas tree, he listened to children’s wishes; guests enjoyed free hot cocoa and Christmas cookies, participated in arts and crafts activities and each child received a bag of candy. The event was sponsored by the Mount Angel Chamber of Commerce.
