SEQUIM — Multi-colored string lights will adorn the Dungeness River Bridge tonight to mark the coming holidays.
The voices and cheer of community members are welcome to mark the first public lighting of the bridge today from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road.
Hot chocolate, homemade cookies and Christmas songs will accompany the spectacle of lights.
Gretha Davis, a Dungeness River Audubon Center volunteer, said this year’s Dine on the Dungeness set string lights atop the bridge at dusk.
“We thought it was such a spectacular experience, so we wanted to bring it back,” Davis said.
However, the third annual dinner on the bridge took place in July, so this lighting ought to show more contrast against the darker winter sky, she said.
Davis said she hopes for a crowd of families to participate in this free celebration.
Guests are advised to bring flashlights to find their way back to their cars.
