Add a free community “to-do” to your holiday fun hit list: Mount Baker Theatre’s holiday tower lighting. December 1, 2017 marks the inaugural illumination of the MBT tower with new permanent LED lights. The lights will enhance the visibility of this beloved building in the night sky and can also change colors to celebrate different community celebrations.
Join MBT for hot chocolate, cider and live music from local student musicians in the main entry foyer on Commercial Street around 5:00 p.m. After a brief dedication, MBT will flip the switch and brighten your night at approximately 5:30 p.m. While the lighting celebration is free of charge with no reservations required, you can purchase tickets to come inside afterward for A Charlie Brown Christmas, starting at 7:00 p.m. Downtown Bellingham’s monthly art walk is also happening that evening for some extra pre-show entertainment.
Once the tower is glowing, follow its beacon to other amazing holiday events, such as Mostly Magic: A Holiday Tradition with John Walton on December 9, The Wizard of Oz on December 20, The 14th Annual Christmas Rocks Tour with the Brian Setzer Orchestra on December 28, or one of the many other local holiday productions MBT is lucky to house in your warm and festive historic hub for live events.
