Christmas Light Extravaganza


As the Holiday season nears, lights are going up.  Starting in mid December, the Seattle area always has many opportunities for taking the family out to see the displays.  Here are three of the best!

Olympic Manor – Enter at 23rd Ave NW and NW 85th St.  Continues the tradition with their newly refurbished lighted rotating vintage Santa at the entry.  Walk or drive the neighborhood and you will see Santa handing out candy canes and collecting for the Ballard Food Bank. A neighborhood with a magical holiday atmosphere, sure to be a hit with kids, but also beautiful and impressive enough to delight adults.

Candy Cane Lane – In Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood, NE Park Road off Ravenna Boulevard in Seattle . Candy Cane Lane is a series of homes on NE Park Road. Houses are adorned with strings of lights, dancing reindeer, candy cane-striped poles, tinsel snowmen. Signs that say “peace” in different languages — paz, paix, shalom — greet visitors from front lawns.

Woodland Park Zoo WildLights – Features wild animals and wild places recreated in thousands of sparkling LED lights inspired by exotic destinations from across the globe, including “Northern Lights,” “The Water Hole” and “Jungle Lights.” Kicks off  November 29 and continue through January 4, 5:30-8:30 nightly.
