9701 15th Ave. NW, Seattle
We had so much fun sketching at Swansons when it was dressed up for fall that we’re meeting there again – this time for its annual Reindeer Festival! A model train and village, Dasher and Blitzen (the reindeer, of course), Santa, a decorated yurt and festive holiday plants and decorations will all be on view. Share your images of Swansons-related holiday sketches on social media with the hashtag #sharingswansons, and Swansons will donate a food item to the Ballard Food Bank for each post. Meet near the reindeer pen.
