When: Sun., Dec. 2, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Revel in holiday magic at the lighting of Ferndale's spectacular living Christmas tree, the tallest in America! Decked with colored lights by Ferndale's volunteer firefighters, the radiant spruce at the end of Main is visible for miles. It's small-town Americana at its best as the whole town turns out and celebrates afterward with free hot cocoa and homemade cookies of all kinds, a Ferndale tradition since 1934! Make sure to arrive early for holiday shopping and eats on historic Main Street and the annual Beans & Linguica Dinner at the Ferndale Portuguese Hall (4-7 p.m)
