Be sure to drop by for a bowl of heart and hand warming soup to keep the December “brrrr’s” at bay!
 
* There are so many Parade special and prize giveaways, we literally cannot keep track. Just know nearly every store you shop has something going on to keep the gift-giving easy on the wallet, so a person can focus on the real reason for the season instead!

Downtown is a short 3-minute drive from the Farmstead. I recommend going in early and parking near Rustlers.  (it might be busy, so hop on over first and check their wait times)

Some streets will be blocked, but there is ample parking if you arrive early. You can walk down Historic Downtown on Front Street, stop in a few shops, and check out Village Books or the Lynden Pioneer Museum, which might be a treat.
