Santa Claus was the guest of honor when the Silverdale Christmas tree was lit Tuesday, Nov. 27. The jolly old elf was escorted to the festivities by a firefighter from Central Kitsap Fire and Rescues station No. 51. Local service groups passed out plenty of hot cider and hot chocolate to the several hundred people who turned out for the annual event on a chilly evening. A choir from Brownsville Elementary School provided entertainment with rousing Christmas carols prior to Santa Claus arrival. The tree, reportedly the worlds largest living Christmas tree, is located at 3510 Anderson Hill Road and can be seen changing from all-red bulbs to a rainbow of light from many vantage points throughout the Silverdale area.
