Five Holiday Event Traditions Washingtonians Love

November 22, 2016

There’s nothing like lights, merry music, and the smells of pine and peppermint to get you in the holiday spirit. But Washingtonians have their own set of holiday habits. Here are 5 of our favorite event traditions:

1. Leavenworth Lights

It's one of Washington’s most cherished holiday traditions. Every December, this small mountain town comes alive with millions upon millions of lights, constant caroling and joyous lighting ceremonies. Get your tickets before they sell out!

2. A Christmas Carol

Bring the whole family to the classic tale showing at Seattle’s ACT Theatre, through December 27.

3. WildLights

This Woodland Park Zoo display features 500,000 animal-shaped lights, real reindeer, night creatures, a carousel, indoor play, and carolers.

4. Riverfront Park Ice Palace

This Spokane holiday hotspot is recognized as one of the best outdoor skating rinks in the nation.

5. Garden d’Lights

Lights take over flowers at Bellevue Botanical Garden! Enjoy zillions of colorful lights and garden-inspired displays.

No matter what event traditions you celebrate this holiday, bring friends and family to supply the seasonal smiles.
