Save the Date! The community of Palmer is proud to bring you Colony Christmas 2016!
This year’s event will kick off on Friday, December 9th! Stop by the Palmer Depot for our annual craft fair, then head over to Palmer Moose Lodge with the kids for an evening of movies at the Moose. Don’t forget to stop by the Palmer Museum for a little wine tasting and a performance by the Alaska Fire Circus.
Then, bright & early Saturday morning, head back to downtown Palmer for a full day of free memory making events.
Start your day with the Lions Pancake Feed hosted at Alaska Bible College. Spend the day walking through beautiful downtown Palmer, enjoying horse drawn carriage rides, reindeer petting, dog mushing, photos with Santa & Mrs. Claus, ride a fat tire bike, cookie decorating and so much more!
While out and about make sure to stop & shop at all the local retailers who are decked out for this holiday tradition of Colony Christmas.
Before heading home, end your day with the Parade of Lights and the amazing fireworks show.
And to round out the weekend, get out and get moving with Active Soles as they host our annual Palmer Winter Triathlon on Sunday, December 11th.
We look forward to you and your family joining us!
