Pendleton - Cayla Truman of Pendleton is the new event coordinator for the popular

Christmas in Pendleton downtown Pendleton celebration. The 13th annual

day-long event scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10, is sponsored by the

Pendleton Business Association. The festival is designed to bring

people downtown Pendleton and let them experience the unique shopping

and dining opportunities of the town.

The very popular Snowball Toss across State Street will return again

with festival attendees tossing foam snowballs to each other across

the street. Past festivals have brought thousands of fun-loving people

to the downtown area to participate in this unique holiday tradition.

The Christmas in Pendleton Parade will precede the snowball toss as a

growing number of clubs, organizations and businesses participate to

celebrate the season.

The community also is invited to enjoy unique shopping and dining

opportunities throughout downtown Pendleton. Other activities planned

this year include: crowning of the Snow Queen and Court, appearance of

the Parade grand marshal, official snowfall measurement and grand

marshal reception at town hall, the third annual collectors’ postal

cancellation stamp, Snow Babies Contest, children's activities,

antique cars, and the singing of Christmas carols on the steps of the

post office.
