Winterfest, Magic in Manette headline a busy Bremerton Friday

Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 3.44.27 PMSanta Claus is double-booked, it turns out, between downtown and Manette on Friday evening. He won’t be the only one with a busy schedule. There are so many events happening between 5-8 p.m. around the city, it will be hard to get to them all. So here’s my roundup. If you have more to add, please drop me a note at

Santa will arrive via fire truck to the Puget Sound Naval Museum by the ferry terminal at 5:30 p.m. A tree lighting there will follow, as will the sounds of the Bremerton High School marching band. Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 3.44.20 PM

In Manette, Santa will arrive at 5:15 p.m. with the Ice Princess. A tree lighting there won’t happen until 7 p.m. (at the corner of E. 11th and Scott Avenue) but in the meantime, photos can be taken with Santa courtesy of Aubin Ahrens Photography. (All they ask is a donation of food, warm coats or cash for local food banks.)

Back downtown, Santa photos will be available from 6-7 p.m. by Hudson Photography at the Kitsap Historical Society on Fourth Street.

There will be horse drawn carriage rides downtown at Burwell and Pacific and free refreshments will be served at the Evergreen Children’s Theater & Aurora Valentinetti Puppet Museum, 257 Fourth Street.
