All Lit Up For The Holidays

Sometimes things get so stressful during the holiday’s that it’s hard to get into the spirit of things. What you need to do is take the time to enjoy yourself. Grab a cup of coffee, turn on some holiday classics and take the family to see one of the many displays of lights in Seattle. Here are a few that you don’t want to miss.

The Woodinville Wonderland: 23620 N.E. 183rd St. in Woodinville. This is one of the biggest displays that runs the entire month of December from 5PM until 9:30PM Sunday thru Thursday and until 10:30 PM on Friday and Saturdays. While there’s no admission, you can take the opportunity to donate to the Special Olympics when you’re there.

Candy Cane Lane: Located in the Ravenna neighborhood on NE Park Rd, this collection of houses has been lighting up Seattle with Holiday cheer since 1949 making it a tradition for both locals and tourist. While you can drive through, you should take the time to get out and walk so you can enjoy the entire experience. There’s no admission but they do take canned food donations for the Seattle food bank. Open nightly until 11 PM and Midnight on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  

Woodland Park Zoo : Open daily from 5:30 - 8:30 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) is the Zoo’s famous light display featuring indoor snowball fights and special appearances by the one and only Santa Claus himself and his reindeer daily from the 19th through the 23rd. Admission is $9.95 for adults and $7.95 for kids under 12.

The very merry Christmas house: South of the city in Kent (30211 176th Ave. S.E. in Kent ) is one of the winners of the Best in Washington 2015. The Laws family works hard to update the show every year and at 65,000 lights, it’s not biggest but it is worth the drive. Tune in to 89.1 FM to hear the music or enjoy the outdoor speakers. The cool thing is that the display is 100% green, made from things that would have otherwise been thrown out proving that one man's trash is another man's treasure. Admission is free but you’re encouraged to bring canned goods to the Black Diamond Senior Center food bank.

The Menashe house: A long standing tradition in West Seattle, the Menashe house located at 5605 Beach Drive South West is loaded with over 300,000 lights as well as various other holiday lawn ornaments. It’s clear that the family loves doing this every year so park close and spend time wandering and taking pictures.

Downtown: You can’t walk around downtown without seeing the local businesses getting into the spirit of things, often in blue and green showing support of the Seahawks. Even the top the Space of the Space Needle is decorated as a tree so get some coffee or warm cider and go explore the city.

This town is a blend of cultures and traditions both old and new and this is what makes the city such an amazing place to live. Regardless of how you celebrate, we hope that you will take this holiday season and let it bring out the best in you.
