November 21, 2023

Downtown Everett, Events in Everett

Santa will light up downtown Everett at 5:00 PM November 24th in front of the Historic Everett Theater.

Santa will be arriving on a City of Everett Fire Truck about 4:45 PM this Friday November 24th in front of the Historic Everett Theatre in the 2900 block of Colby. At 5:00 PM Santa will throw the switch to turn on the Holiday lights up and down Colby Avenue along with the tree above Hewitt and Colby. We hear there may even be a little snow involved.

After the lighting Santa will go into the Historic Everett Theater to pose for pictures. Bring your phone for a “Selfie with Santa”.
