‘Tis the Season, Affiniti, and Denim and Pearls

December 03, 2018

This December, the City of Walla Walla is offering up a multitude of Yuletide events and activities, and some of our favorites are listed here. First, head over to the Gesa Power House Theatre on December 13 for a live holiday concert. A Celtic Christmas with Affinití, one of Ireland’s preeminent Celtic classical trios, is returning to the Gesa and will be joined by Howard Crosby, nephew of recording and Hollywood musical legend Bing Crosby, on their annual Christmas Tour.

Also, live at the Gesa on December 15, ‘Tis the Season will be performed. A local holiday tradition will feature an assortment of musical selections by a variety of performers, including jazz vocalist Gail Pettis Jazz. Lastly, come out and kick off the New Year with us at the Marcus Whitman Hotel’s Denim & Pearls New Year’s Eve Party. Join us in the Grand Ballroom in your finest Western stylin’ for the best blowout in town. We’ll have live music by Shanks Pony, beer, wine, and champagne, three rounds of hors d’oeuvres, party favors, and a televised presentation of the ball drop. Call (509) 524-5139 for tickets, and ask about special room rates with a ticket purchase.
