Santa Claus is coming to town!
SANTA! SANTAS COMING! I KNOW HIM! I KNOW HIM!
Yes, it is true. Santa will be arriving in West Linn on Friday to a jubilant crowd outside city hall at the Cascade Town Square. For many in West Linn, the tree lighting and community celebration is an annual tradition. If you know anyone new to West Linn, consider asking them to join your family beginning at 6 p.m. to this free event. This year, the celebration includes the ceremonial tree lighting, visit and photo with Santa, cookie and ornament decorating, bounce house and outdoor stage featuring local entertainment, including an interactive performance by the Radio Disney team. Merchants throughout the shopping center will be hosting in-store specials and giving away merchandise in the plaza area. For their partnership we extend a special thanks to Tanner Springs Assisted Living, The Kids Dentist, Dr. Yip, Toyota of Gladstone, Dragonfly Greetings & Gifts, Starbucks, West Linn Tidings and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and, new to West Linn, Moxie Dance Theatre!

Holiday lovers agree, nothing compares to sweating in sweaters to make special memories! Not only is the Ugly Holiday Sweater Dash a unique way to spend time together but it also supports the year-round needs of the West Linn Food Pantry. Another popular event for families is the holiday parade. To commemorate the West Linn Centennial we have themed the parade Its a Wonderful Life West Linn-100 Years. This event is presented by the City of West Linn, with our partner Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and event sponsor, Advantis Credit Union, to benefit those in need, especially local children. Donations of non-perishable food and new unwrapped toys will be collected at the Willamette Fire Station immediately following the parade. The Ugly Holiday Sweater Dash and Parade happen Saturday, Dec. 14 in the historic Willamette district.
