Sunday, Dec. 1, 2019’s Chowdown

Thanksgiving is over. You did it! Onto the next one. 

With December barging into our lives it is now time to face thew inevitable: Like it or not, Christmas is coming. Eep! As many of you know, the first significant sign of the season locally takes place down in Ferndale, Humboldt’s Christmas Capital™, where they’ll again be firing up “America’s Tallest Living Christmas Tree” Sunday evening at the end of Main Street. For those wondering, yes, LoCO has half-assed looked into the claim in the past and, yes, as far as we can tell it holds up. Enjoy Ferndale holiday joy without fear you are being scammed. It’s a spruce, for the record.

Details on the tree lighting and other Sunday fun in your Lowdown listings below.
