Olympia Heads Downtown for the Holidays
Pack up the fall harvest decorations, its time to dust off the holiday ornaments and string the lights. To help Olympia get in the holiday spirit, the Olympia Downtown Association brings us the annual Downtown for the Holidays celebration. Check out amazing gingerbread creations, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, and get your photo with Santa at this free winter community event.
The event runs from noon to 5 p.m. but here is a full schedule for each of the attractions at Downtown for the Holidays. Hope to see you downtown!
