Given the snowy Seattle weather, it seems a little silly to post about all the fun holiday things that you can do, because many people are without power or can’t even get our of their driveway or neighborhood.
But, on the off chance that this snow melts quickly, put the Fantasy Lights at Spanaway Park (Tacoma) on your must-see holiday lights list. The two mile lighting display along Spanaway Lake is the the largest drive-through holiday lights display in the Pacific Northwest.
With over 300 displays, including animation, the bring a smile to light up even the coldest moment.
Tune the car radio to FM 93.7 for accompanying holiday music as you drive through to make it a complete sensory experience.
Location: Spanaway Park, Bresemann Boulevard & Military Road, Spanaway (map it)
Date & Time: November 27th, 2008 – January 4th, 2009, 5:30 – 9:30 pm
Admission: $13 per vehicle. Discounts tickets ($10) are available at Lakewood Community Center, Sprinker Recreation Center, and Garfield Bookstore at Pacific Lutheran University.
There are normally very lines and wait times for this popular community event, especially on weekends. The snow may reduce driving traffic, so if you’re able to get out and around safely, it may be a good time to plan a visit.
The display will be up through January 4th, and the snow has to be gone by then!
