I managed to squeeze in three of the four activities mentioned in yesterday’s post.

Santa counts down with the town before flipping the switch to light one million lights from the balcony at Alex’s Restaurant.

I’m going to miss the Festival of Light tonight in Ashland as we are in San Francisco this weekend. Entertainment in downtown Ashland begins at 1 p.m. today. Santa’s Parade begins at the library at 5 p.m. Santa is going to turn on the lights from the balcony at Alex’s between 5:45 and 6 p.m. I’ll show you a photo from last year of that part of the festivities tomorrow.

Today’s photo is also from last year’s Festival of Light Parade.

Part of the “Festival of Light” is the lighting up of downtown Ashland. Before the parade there are some lights, but many do not come on until Santa says so from the balcony of Alex’s. The Ashland Springs Hotel saves most of their lights for that occasion. I guess I need to go back and take a photo now that the lights on the hotel are completely on every night (until early January).

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus…

Merry Christmas

Ashland Christmas Party

Santa has finished turning on the lights after the Festival of Light parade. Now the carolers crank out the tunes.

Venus, Jupiter, and Starbucks

I took this picture of Starbucks before the Festival of Light parade on the last Friday in November. Above Starbucks you can see two bright lights. Those celestial bodies are Venus and Jupiter. A week later they made a very unique smiley face in the sky with the moon helping out.
