Holidays in Hood River

The Hood River Holiday Kick-off Party takes place in downtown Hood River on Friday, December 4, 2015. Ignite your holiday spirit with an old-fashioned downtown parade, a gorgeous tree lighting, caroling, and a visit with Santa. The Holiday Happy Hour starts at 4 p.m. and the streets will close at 5 p.m. for easy, safe holiday shopping, followed by the 6 p.m. Holiday Parade. The Tree Lighting, which cannot be missed, will follow the parade’s conclusion at 2nd and State Street, and Santa will be waiting at G. Williker’s Toy Shoppe on 2nd and Oak Street downtown. Even before the Kick-off, Hood River is in full holiday splendor. The Holiday Open House (November 20, 21, and 22) is a fantastic time to get your holiday shopping done. All your favorite Hood River shops and sellers will be fully stocked for the holidays and eager to get you into the spirit. Free Parking Downtown on December 14-26. Via
