Folks dreaming of a white Christmas got a wet night instead as Eatonville celebrated the arrival of the season last Saturday. But it was all good.
Revelers dressed for the cold and rain lined Mashell Avenue for the traditional parade, which capped the annual Christmas in Eatonville celebration.
Before the procession that included sights such as vehicles decked out with multi-colored lights, families flocked to the Eatonville Visitors Center for visits with Santa Claus, refreshments, and live holiday music.
Standing out in the parking lot while talking on a handheld radio, Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson watched the line of cars, one by one, pull up to the county elections center in Tacoma on election day this month.
