Tree Lighting in Milwaukie

 The winning umbrella, pirate-themed, and peep Santa in the background.  Aw yeah. 

Dear God it was like stepping back in time and into Mayberry.  I have never seen a more cute gathering.  Also, I don't believe I've ever seen more people or action in downtown Milwaukie before.  Everyone was out, most proudly displaying their decorated umbrellas from the parade (see photo above for the winner - of course it's a pirate theme, duh), with the Johnson Creek Brass Band providing music and some old folks handing out cookies and hot cocoa. 

Miss Clackamas (yes, re-read that) did the countdown to the tree lighting, tiara and all.  Santa ho-ho-ho'd.  There were horses and carriage rides!  It was pretty goshdarn thrilling.
