Annual Yule Log Hunt

December 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Palmer Lake Yule Log HuntA Palmer Lake tradition since 1933, the 89th Annual Yule Log Hunt will take place on December 11 at 1:00 PM.

The Finder and friends straddle the Yule log for a victory ride into town. The Hider and the Finder then saw the log in half. Half is burned in the Town Hall fireplace during the Wassail Ceremony, and the other half is used for next year’s kindling.
