How cold was it Friday night?

The numbers were on the minus side of freezing. That didn’t stop hundreds of gloved, mittened and bundled residents, visitors and volunteers from enjoying the Annual Pacific Power Parade of Lights and Tree Lighting Ceremony, Seaside’s iconic holiday event.

This was no Mickey Mouse operation. To be sure, Mickey was there, along with Minnie, Goofy and a few other Disney friends.

Santa Claus was there to grant children’s wishes and “Baby Sharks” were the theme of the Hillcrest in and 94.9 the Bridge. Among many, groups from the Seaside Downtown Development Association, the Scouts, Sons of Beaches, Seaside High School, and of course Pacific Power lined Broadway for Seaside’s most festive winter event.
