Kirkland asks the community to help light up downtown for the holiday season. On Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., volunteers will be hanging lights on businesses in Kirkland.

This event is a way to get into the holiday spirit while also helping build community, according to the city.

Participants should meet at the Hallmark Realty in downtown Kirkland at 101 Lake Street S. Dress warm and the city urges participants to wear gloves and bring a ladder if they can. Youth volunteers are welcome, although an adult must accompany those under 13.

Register online to volunteer, and contact Penny Sweet at penny.sweet13@gmail.com for questions. This is a City of Kirkland partnership project.
