The Sublette County Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual Mountain Man Christmas in Pinedale on Saturday, December 13th. The Chamber had an open house at the Sublette County Visitor Center in the evening with refreshments and tastings for wines from Jackson Hole Winery and spirits from Wyoming Whiskey. Next was the official tree lighting of a huge tree on the Sublette County Courthouse lawn, the honors of which fell to Commissioner Jim Latta this year. After the sun set, people lined both sides of the street for an after-dark holiday parade down Pine Street with beautiful lighted floats.

The relatively warm temperatures made it pretty comfortable and many families turned out for the fun with their kids to enjoy the holiday fun. Many stores on main street stayed open after hours for late-night holiday shopping and offering specials for the day. The Sublette County Library had fun craft events during the day and evening for kids.
