Celebration of Svaty Mikulas Day and Tree Lighting
Join Svaty Mikulas, the Angel and Devil for a traditional Czech/Slovak kick-off to the holidays. The trio will greet children with candy or potatoes. There will be singing by the Czech Heritage Singers and a short presentation on the customs and traditions of the Czech/Slovak Christmas. Then we will form a candle lit parade to the bandstand where we will light the Christmas tree and all of the Ave. The celebration starts at 5:30 with cookies and hot chocolate. This ancient tradition will start the Deck the District weekend. Artisan Santurary-45 16th Ave S.W.
