Enjoy a cozy holiday island getaway this season with small-town traditions

Friday Harbor, WA … Eastsound Village Green, Lopez Village and Friday Harbor will all sparkle during their signature lighting events with singing by local choirs, cookies and hot cider to brighten spirits. Twenty-one thousand lights will adorn the giant 92-year-old twin Dutch Elms on Friday Harbor’s waterfront.

There’s so much to do during the Island Lights Festival and beyond, with holiday plays and concerts; wine tastings and dinners; special restaurant and lodging packages and more. No mall traffic, crowded parking lots or stop lights to impede the holiday cheer. Take a walk on a stormy beach, cozy up to glass of local wine by the fire, or get a rejuvenating massage. Shop small-scale at artisans’ fairs, boutiques, galleries and independent bookstores for one-of-a-kind gifts.
