Santa and Mrs. Claus came to town Saturday night and joined in the parade and tree lighting in downtown Vashon, where they were greeted by a crowd of cheerful revelers despite the rain.

This weekend, kids and their families can stop by Santa’s cottage in the Village Green to visit with him and have their pictures taken between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There are many other holiday activities coming up, including The Boy Scout tree sale this weekend at the U.S. Bank parking lot, the chorale Christmas concert, also this weekend, and “Will Sing for Vashon,” an annual fundraiser for the island’s nonprofits. See details in the Calendar and Arts section of this week’s paper.
