Neither snow, nor rain, nor wind, nor COVID-19 can stop the annual Twinkle Light Holiday Parade …this year the weather was almost balmy! Thanks to all the families that came out to see Santa and the other parade entries… and a huge thank you to all those who participated!

Thanks to the city of Forks crew for setting up the detour signs and thanks to the Forks Police Department for blocking the road, escorting the little train, and helping the community have a little Holiday Cheer in 2020.

Although Santa was unable to do any one-on-one visits this year he did agree to appear in the 19th Annual Twinkle Light Holiday Parade. With Rick Seguin as the train engineer, after their gig on Forks Avenue, the train (with Rick and Santa) got a police escort to make a special drive-by appearance at Concerned Citizens before the train went back into storage at the Forks Airport and Santa took off to finish any last-minute work before Christmas.
