Festival of Light
Ashland 20th Annual Festival of Light took place on the day after Thanksgiving. The festivities kicked off with the Siskiyou Singers at 3pm, there were lots of Choirs and Bands all afternoon on the Festival Stage. At 5pm the Festival of Light Parade began at Ashland Library and wended it’s way along Main Street to the Plaza
where Santa Claus and Mrs Claus, Rudolph and the Elves( lovely young ladies who were dressed in short red costumes, who danced there way down the parade route just in front of Santa’s sleigh) all made there way up to the balcony of Alex’s Restaurant to lead caroling to the thousands of merry makers. Santa counted down, then switched on the Grand Illuminations.
More singing followed with a concert by fellow Innkeeper Greg Capp singing holiday songs. This is a fabulous event every year and well worth traveling to see.
