Town celebrates Greening of Coupeville on Saturday By MEGAN HANSEN

mhansen@whidbeynewsgroup.com

Holiday spirit is alive and well in Coupeville this weekend with the town’s annual Greening of Coupeville celebration. Everything kicks off Saturday with the annual Jingle Trail Run at Camp Casey. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. with the race starting at 10 a.m. Register now through the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce. In between events, stop at Coupeville United Methodist Church for its annual bazaar, which runs 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Items for sale will include handmade quilts and crafts, attic treasures, bakery items and fresh wreaths. Lunch of chicken casserole and homemade pie will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Spend an afternoon watching a free performance of “Peter and the Wolf” with the Saratoga Orchestra. The concert runs 1-3 p.m. at the Coupeville High School Performing Arts Center. In addition to the special performance, there will be an Instrument Petting Zoo for

The annual Greening of Coupeville Parade will begin at Terry Road and South Main Street about 4:15 p.m., making its way down

the parade route collecting eyeglass donations for Lions vision programs. Retiring Mayor Nancy Conard will be leading her final parade as mayor in her signature Frosty the Snowman costume. She said she hasn’t decided what the future will hold for her role in the parade after this year. As with each Greening, all events are weather dependent, said Lynda Eccles with the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce. Last year, the community had such exceptional weather, that Conard actually had to stop halfway down the parade route because she became overheated in her snowman costume. She finished the event riding on the back of a tractor. Shortly after the parade, the community will gather at Cook’s Corner Park for a tree lighting. Carols will be lead from the porch of Anchorage Inn and after the lighting, crowds can shop on Front Street during a Late Night Shopping event. Then go on down to the Coupeville Wharf and watch participants in the Lighted Boat Parade.
