Dolly Madison to emcee West Seattle Junction Hometown Holidays tree lighting this Saturday, Dec. 3

West Seattle's Hometown Holidays celebration kicks off this Saturday, December 3, with a tree lighting celebration from 4:30pm to 5:30pm at the Junction Plaza Park at 42nd Ave. SW and SW Alaska St., followed by a month of festive events, holiday shopping and free parking. Local drag star Dolly Madison will emcee the tree lighting ceremony.

Bringing people together and building community is a big part of why Dolly loves performing, especially for her West Seattle community. The ability to make people laugh, think and come together to build community has been a highlight of her weekly show at Outwest and is a big reason she loves hosting community events and fundraisers.

Dolly Madison began performing seven years ago and has enjoyed entertaining audiences in shows and fundraisers across the Seattle area. Prior to drag, Dolly (Derik) had a career as a dancer in shows such as Chicago (touring) and 'Jubilee' in Las Vegas. In addition to her Saturday night show at Outwest Bar, Dolly is a West Seattle business owner with Cor Fitness Pilates & Gyrotonic.



They say it's better to give than to receive. But choose to give local this holiday season, and you'll receive even more. When you check off your list at The Junction (the West Seattle neighborhood centered around California Ave SW & SW Alaska St) you are not only giving your friends and family unique local gifts you might not find anywhere else, but you are also receiving a special connection to your community and the satisfaction of supporting your neighbor. There's a certain joy in knowing that you're backing your local bike shop or guitar store, your go-to gift shop or toy store, your favorite barista or friendly farmer. It's a feeling that harkens back to simpler times and smaller towns when shoppers knew every shopkeeper, butcher and baker by name.

Shopping local sparks the magic of true hometown holiday spirit.

What's more, The Junction has so much in store for everyone. Experience the magic of the season with a full array of holiday inspired events.
