Ho Ho Ho!
The IMA knows it’s not even Halloween yet, but as you know, Santa’s elves have to work year round to be ready by our event! Actually – the weekend before!
The goal is to have all business and street side decorations UP and LIT by the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend.
In addition to Ilwaco’s Small Business Saturday (Saturday after Thanksgiving), Long Beach will be lit and ready for their annual Holidays at the Beach (Thanksgiving weekend)
The IMA is also co-sponsoring a business display and decorating contest with the LBMA. Judging is the Friday after Thanksgiving.
The Crab Pot Christmas event is always the first Saturday in December. 5 pm
This year’s IMA event will feature the traditional activities with the return of the drive-by parade for decorated cars. The road will be closed at 4 pm and the parade will line up along Howerton Way from the east end/ Elizabeth.
We are asking that you focus your decoration to the street side and hoping to see some more businesses string lights this year!
Please RSVP to the event on Facebook to receive updates and information. Our page is ‘Discover Ilwaco”. you can find the event by clicking our events tab, or searching for Crab Pot Christmas 2021.
