There’s much to do in Port Orchard and beyond this holiday season — from shopping for handmade, locally made gifts to taking horse-drawn carriage rides. Make sure to bring the whole family! The community spirit shines all around McCormick and the Kitsap Peninsula during the holiday season. From craft fairs to tree lightings to pet parades, there’s something to do for all ages. Here’s a short list of our favorite events in the Port Orchard area and beyond.
