The day after Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season in downtown Seattle with the Macy’s Holiday Parade, followed later in the day by the Tree Lighting Celebration in Westlake Center.
- 9:00 – 10:00AM – Macy’s Holiday Parade with a visit from Santa
- 4:45 PM – Tree Lighting Celebration with live music and fireworks! (Convene at Westlake Center for the action, and we recommend going early to secure a viewing spot.)
There is obviously a gap of time between the parade and tree lighting, but there is no shortage of shopping, eating or just meandering to do while you are downtown.
