Annual Christmas Tree Lighting, Hometown Holidays Returns to Camas


Camas, WA – The City of Camas is set to once again host Hometown Holidays. That means photos with Santa, crafts, the lovely lit holiday tree, entertainment, food and refreshments – it’s all back this year, albeit with some modifications, according to the City of Camas.

Hometown Holidays will be held Friday, Dec. 3, from 5- 8 pm, and Downtown Camas will be bustling once again with live and pre-recorded entertainment, modified photos with Santa (bring your camera), crafts activity bags for the kids, street food vendors, and downtown restaurants and shops open for business. The event begins at 5 pm, to coincide with Downtown Camas Association’s First Friday.

The event and all activities are free of charge thanks to the financial support of Columbia Credit Union, Windermere Real Estate, Downtown Camas Association, Equipment Rental Services, and in-kind donors and volunteers. However, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase food from Camas’ various downtown restaurants and food vendors, and to shop for holiday gifts in Camas’ picturesque historic downtown.

The Camas Library will hold its annual Hometown Holidays book sale Thursday, Dec. 2, to Sunday, Dec. 5, open until 8 pm, during Hometown Holidays. Thousands of donated items, from children’s picture books, to cookbooks, to juicy thrillers and romances will be featured. With something for everyone, it’s a fantastic opportunity to do some holiday shopping. All proceeds go to the Friends & Foundation of the Camas Library.

“We are so happy to be bringing back this favorite event after a year’s hiatus,” said Krista Bashaw, special events coordinator for the City of Camas.  “It gets us in the mood for the holidays and it brings our community together to share some of the joy of the season.”
