The trees are lit along Queen Anne Ave N, and the festive holiday look is just the first step, next up is the annual Holiday Magic evening – all thanks to our Upper Queen Anne merchants, who fund the tree lighting and host the event. The annual Holiday Magic evening has a slew of activities for both young and old on Friday, December 7th, 4-8pm. So, plan an evening stroll along Queen Anne Ave N and stop in at all of our local merchants to say hello and happy holidays!
