Here in Tacoma, we know how to welcome Santa in style, even if it’s 19th century style. On Thursday, Dec. 5, he arrives at the historic Job Carr Cabin Museum in the city's Old Town neighborhood, for the annual Tree Lighting and Santa Visit event taking place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The cabin is located at 2350 N. 30th Street in Tacoma, on the grounds of Old Town Park. Here are driving directions.
Would kids rather see Santa in a boring shopping mall or a real log cabin, all decorated for the season? It’s a no-brainer! Give them a great experience they will remember. With most families, weekends in December fill up with activities quickly, so this delightful, educational family event on a weeknight evening presents a perfect opportunity for fun or the beginning of a new tradition.
The Tree-Lighting is co-sponsored by Job Carr Cabin Museum and Old Town Business& Professional Association. There are many positive reasons to attend this event.
Photos with Santa in the cabin are free, and offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Numbered tickets will be handed out as people arrive, so be sure to arrive early. You can park on the street.
Donations of non-perishable foods will be accepted at the event, and given to the Food Connection.
Hot chocolate and cookies will be served (while supplies last) free-of-charge. The cookies are purchased by OTBPA as a fundraiser for Toys For Tots.
