RBCA and Richmond Beach Library are hosting a craft party for neighborhood children to create holiday decorations. Among other craft activities, children will have an opportunity to make cards, which will be handed out to residents at Richmond Beach Rehab during the caroling event later in the day. The Holiday Craft Party will be held in the meeting room of the Richmond Beach Library (19601 21st Avenue NW), from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Starting at 4:45 p.m., you are invited to attend the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at the plaza by the fountain in Richmond Beach Coffee Company’s parking lot (1442 NW Richmond Beach Road). Limited parking will be available in Spin Alley's back lot until 5:30 p.m. Enjoy refreshments and music of the season provided by the St. Luke School Choir while waiting for Santa to arrive on his fire engine and light up the community holiday tree. Residents and visitors to Richmond Beach will be greeted by the tree's twinkling lights during the holidays as they meander down Richmond Beach Road.
After the Tree Lighting festivities, join your neighbors at the Richmond Beach Rehab (19235 15th Avenue NW) to spread some holiday cheer through song to the residents. While this activity only involves about an hour of your time, it has a tremendous impact on the residents of the rehab. They really appreciate the attention. And that is truly what the holidays are about - caring and sharing. Please join us, even if you can't carry a tune!
This Pacific Northwest tradition takes place at the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park (2021 NW 90th Street). Since parking is limited, please plan to walk if possible. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. with music by the St. Luke School Choir.
The Christmas Ship, followed by a fleet of Argosy vessels, private yachts, sailboats and other small crafts decked out with holiday lights, will arrive off the Saltwater Park at 8:20 p.m. for a 20-minute performance by the Center for Spiritual Living Choir. Gather around a roaring bonfire while joyous voices from the choir onboard the ship serenade beach guests. Complimentary cookies will be served at the RBCA booth on the beach. This event is jointly sponsored by the City of Shoreline and Richmond Beach Community Association..
