Last weekend, I packed up the car and headed north for a fun-filled weekend in the Flathead Valley. My destination? Whitefish.

First things first, I love this town! It has a certain western charm that manages to mix perfectly with ski bums, outdoor lovers and funky boutiques. Plus, it has great food and a great nightlife scene.

Coincidentally (and yet totally on purpose) I planned my weekend in Whitefish to coincide with their Christmas Stroll. I HEART Christmas and wanted to see exactly what type of festivities Whitefish put on to celebrate. And I’ll tell you what – I was not disappointed.

On arrival, I was greeted with the soft glow of lights and downtown decorations, carolers, bonfires, the world’s shortest parade, wagon rides, vendors and a K-9 keg pull.

Perhaps the finest group of carolers in Whitefish!

This puppy really wanted in on the keg pull action.

My favorite thing (besides seeing some lovely friends): chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

Well done, sir, well done.


PS: They even had a float reminding attendees of the Whitefish Winter Carnival, a very fun weekend of activities. Mark your calendar for February 4 – 6, 2011 and come on up. See you in Whitefish!
