Like "You Got Served" With Christmas Carols

Tomorrow (Friday) from 6:30-8pm Westlake Center is going to be filled with the sounds of Christmas cheer in addition to the sounds of Christmas commerce. We didn't even know this happened at all, but it's the 20th(!) annual Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Competition. Their press release says it's a Seattle tradition, but this is the first we've heard of it. It's definitely for a good cause though, as the teams compete to gather the most money to donate to the Pike Market Senior Center & Downtown Food Bank. Seattle, you continue to surprise us, and to quote Martha Stewart, "That's a good thing."

Date: Friday, December 1, 2006
Time: 6:00pm – 8:30pm
Where: Westlake Center & Pine Street between 3rd Ave. & 7th Ave.
What: 40+ teams compete in a caroling competition to raise funds for the Pike Market Senior Center & Downtown Food Bank.

(5:00 - 6:00pm) Pre-Figgy Entertainment: Christmas in the Northwest artist, Doxology will perform on the main stage in Westlake Center.
(6:15 – 7:15pm) Caroling Team Competition
(7:30-8:30pm) Caroling Competition Finals and Award Ceremony
