Tree Lighting at the Coos Bay Visitor Center with Santa, Plus ELF! at The Egyptian

Join Santa at the Coos Bay Visitor Center for the Coos Bay Tree Lighting! The evening begins with cookies and cider in the Visitor Center at 4:30pm. Santa and the Mayor of Coos Bay will light the tree at 5:30pm. Following the tree lighting, follow Santa and the parade of revelers to The Egyptian Theatre as we return to the tradition of watching Elf after the tree lighting! Santa will sit on stage and listen to the wishes of the boys and girls. Elf will begin at about 7pm. Don’t forget your balled up white socks for the snowball fight!!!

November 26
ELF! at The Egyptian

Two showings of Elf are planned, including a matinee with Santa once again available to hear all those wish lists! An evening showing at 7pm will not include Santa.

Reindeer Roundup

Ruckus, the Reindeer, has convinced Santa’s reindeer to explore downtown instead of going back to the north pole following Santa’s visit. The reindeer will be hiding in businesses downtown. Find the reindeer in participating businesses, take a picture and then fill out an entry form to be entered to win a grand prize. (Business hours vary) The event will end on December 21st when the reindeer will return to the north pole to help Santa deliver toys to children around the world.

December 2
Empire District Tree Lighting and Santa Parade

The Empire District of Coos Bay will hold their annual Tree Lighting at 5:30pm, and will also live stream it on their Facebook page . Before the lighting, Santa will be riding through the streets in the Empire District - from 3:30-5:30pm - on top of the Empire fire engine as his elves hand out goodies to all the good little children in Empire. After the tree lighting, Star of Hope will once again be opening their doors for families to come in, have refreshments, visit personally with Santa, and vote in the gingerbread house competition. Each Star of Hope team will design and build a gingerbread house entry and the most votes will determine this year’s winner.
