Editor's Explorations - Oh What Fun!

  • Written by Kristen Hamilton

How do two newcomers to the Seattle area get in the Christmas spirit?  They go out and do things – lots of Christmassy things!  As we discovered, there are a plethora of activities in Woodinville and around Seattle to get you in the spirit.  Our quest to find the spirit of Christmas had begun!

To kick things off, we started  with  the Woodinville Tree Lighting Ceremony and Winterfest Celebration.  After reading about the Community Tree and all of the people that helped get the new tree to its’ temporary home in DeYoung Park in time for the tree lighting, we knew we had to be there.  It was a nice night, and great to see friends and family members enjoying the evening together.

Editor's Expeditions - Silvertips

My family and I took to the ice for this exploration…the ice at Xfinity Arena to see the Everett Silvertips Hockey Club that is.  We saw the Silvertips in action against the Spokane Chiefs on November 24 to extend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Although we scored a box suite for the occasion, there did not seem to be a bad seat in the house. The complex holds about 8,300 people, which is a really great size space to see all the action easily.  There are many food and beverage options throughout the arena, and there were many families enjoying the game. Attending a hockey game in person far exceeds the experience of watching a game on television. The speed, grace and agility of these great athletes is much more obvious seeing them in person. The Silvertips play an exciting brand of hockey, and the organization works hard to get the crowd fired up!

As you know from past Editor’s Explorations, we love live theater and live music so we were happy to hear that  “In My Life: A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles” was playing at the Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA).  Since we also love the Beatles, we knew we had to go.
