If you’re celebrating Christmas in Portland and are looking for something to do tonight, Winter Wonderland is open at the Portland International Raceway. Enjoy more than 250 light displays while driving around the track. It’s one of the largest drive-through Christmas light shows west of the Mississippi River, and all proceeds go to the Sunshine Division, which has provided food and clothing to the needy in the Portland-Vancouver metro area since 1923.

Drive through a field of twinkling Christmas stockings, candy canes, and snowmen while reindeer jump across the road. Watch children slide down a hill on their sled and a Christmas train filled with toys chug along its own lighted track. Enjoy whimsical displays of the characters from the song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
