Event Details

Join us for Washington’s 30th Annual Holiday in the Depot on Friday, December 10th!

This year, the evening will begin with the lighting of our tree followed by Santa arriving at 6:00 pm by horse and wagon. Christmas carols will be performed on the steps of the Bryan Memorial Town Hall by our local school choirs. Inside the Town Hall, Santa will listen to children’s wishes, The Washington Fire Department Auxiliary will mail children’s letters to Santa and have their annual commemorative ornament for sale.
