Tree’s up on South Perry

Lots of neighbors big and small, young and old, gathered at the Perry Street Cafe last night for the annual Christmas tree lighting. The cafe genorously hosted the event, serving coffee, hot chocolate and cookies for everyone. And Santa was busy having his picture taken.

Once the indoor commotion had calmed down, people went outside to sing carols and put ornaments on the Christmas tree.

Farmers Market is still open

The South Perry Farmers market is still open every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. The market's winter location is in the Buddhist Temple gym, just across the street from The Shop (915 S. Perry Street).

On December 22 the market plans a special holiday market, complete with Santa, carolers and lots of local gift ideas.

The market will close for the season after the Dec. 22 event and reopen on March 1, 2012.

Christmas on South Perry

The South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association is having its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony outside the Perry Street Cafe (1002 S. Perry Street) on Tuesday Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Come and enjoy carols and treats and chat with your neighbors.

This is also the official kick off of the “Brighten the Night” campaign which will encourage residents to leave their porch lights on to illuminate streets, alleys and sidewalks so the area is more welcoming to visitors and shoppers. Hopefully this will cut down on burglary attempts, too.

This event replaces the monthly SPBNA meeting - to all of you who have asked how to connect with SPBNA and when the group meets, come to this event and meet everyone. The picture is from last year's Christmas tree lighting.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
