ILWACO - The Port of Ilwaco, along with Ilwaco Harbour Village Merchants' Association (IHV), is busy decorating businesses and boats for Christmas.

Join them Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 5:30 p.m. as all the lights are flipped on. IHV President Bruce Peterson said, "This is the first time in many years that we have concentrated our efforts to Light Up The Port. We encourage everyone in the area to visit the Port and enjoy the lights!"

The lights will be on nightly through the end of December.

Special nights of shopping are also planned. Local port merchants - galleries and specialty shops - will be open until 7 p.m. on Dec. 9, 10, 16 and 17. You are encouraged to stop in and shop; the galleries and shops will be glad to assist with finding the right item for that someone special on your list. After shopping and viewing the lights, enjoy a hearty dinner at one of the local restaurants.
