The City of Pasco and Spokane Teachers Credit Union (STCU) will sponsor the annual Winterfest celebration December 4-9. It kicks off with the Candy Cane Scavenger Hunt which takes place December 4-7. Follow the clues posted daily at 9 a.m. on @PascoParks Facebook page and find the candy canes hidden in locations throughout Pasco. The locations change daily, but this is not a race to be first. Once you locate the candy canes, scan the QR code to earn a daily entry into a prize drawing.
Free holiday movies will be featured at Fairchild Cinemas in Pasco on December 6 and 9. Movies will start every 10 minutes for an hour, and each person will receive one free mini-popcorn. On December 6 enjoy The Grinch 2018 (rated PG) beginning at 6 p.m. On December 9, the feature will be Arthur Christmas (rated G) beginning at 9 a.m.
Winterfest continues on December 9 with a celebration and holiday tree-lighting in Peanuts Park from 3 to 7 p.m., featuring holiday music and kids’ games and crafts. Children will have the opportunity to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. The Grand Prize for the Candy Cane Scavenger Hunt will be drawn prior to the tree lighting; you must be present to win. The tree-lighting will be at 5:30 p.m. to kick off Pasco’s holiday season. Stick around afterwards and enjoy food and drinks from our vendors.
