Pasco to Host Winterfest Dec. 4-9

The City of Pasco and Spokane Teachers Credit Union (STCU) will sponsor the annual Winterfest celebration early next month. In the Candy Cane Scavenger Hunt that takes place Dec. 4-7, you can follow clues posted daily at 9 a.m. on Facebook and find the candy canes hidden in locations throughout the city. The locations change daily, but this is not a race to be first. Just scan the QR code to earn daily entries into a prize drawing.

Free holiday movies will be featured at Fairchild Cinemas in Pasco on Dec. 6 and 9. Movies will start every 10 minutes for an hour, and each person will receive a free mini-popcorn. On Dec. 6. enjoy The Grinch 2018 (rated PG) beginning at 6 p.m. On Dec. 9, the feature will be Arthur Christmas (rated G) beginning at 9 a.m.

Winterfest continues on Dec. 9 with a celebration and 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 tree-lighting begins at 5:30 p.m. to kick off Pasco’s holiday season.
