Brier celebrates holiday season with lights, song and Mr. and Mrs. Claus

Brier residents braved the cold weather and slippery roads to attend the annual Brier Holiday Lighting at Brier City Hall Saturday night.

This close-knit community was treated to musical entertainment by the Brier Elementary Choir and Mountlake Terrace High School Jazz Band. People drank cocoa and cider provided by Espresso Works and nibbled on goodies sold by Moon Rabbit Pastry.

Nearby, the MTHS Key Club had a popular booth where children could make ornaments.

Santa and Mrs. Claus made a cheerful appearance, first thanking the Brier Parks Board for spending hours preparing tonight’s event. They then welcomed children to sit for photos and share what they’d like for Christmas.

Donations were accepted for the Concern for Neighbors Food Bank.

  1. Hi. This is Beth the Parking Lot Director at Concern for Neighbors Food Bank and I was with Arthur the President of our Board of Directors at the amazing Brier function.

    We were able to collect 50 pounds of much needed food and an additional $207.00 from the wonderful attendees on Saturday night which we are very grateful for.

    We want to thank everyone for their support and especially the Brier Parks Board who have stood by the Concern for Neighbors Food Bank for so many years at all of their functions.

    Unfortunately, the Food Bank will be closed on Tuesday December 6th due to the treacherous conditions in our parking lot and the bridge of ice and snow along the sidewalks on 48th Ave W and 228th St SW due to the very necessary snow plowing.

    Again, thanks so much for all of the support that Concern for Neighbors Food Bank has received from everyone over all of our many many years. It is greatly appreciated.
