In normal years, The Lights of Christmas at the Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center has walk-through displays with more than a million lights, concessions, and other activities to celebrate the holidays. For an extra charge, you could make reservations for a dinner or brunch show.
This year because of safety concerns from the COVID pandemic, the annual tradition transformed into a drive-through event. The beautiful light displays are still there, arranged differently so that you can see them from the comfort of your car.
If you want to buy something to eat or some souvenirs, you can stop at the drive-up booths along the route and receive your order without leaving your car.
Santa and Mrs. Claus are there, too. They’ll wave when you pass and wish you a merry Christmas.
Tickets are timed and available online only. The price ranges from $20 to $25 per car, depending on when you go. To buy tickets and learn more, go to thelightsofchristmas.com.
Hours are 5-10 p.m. tonight through Wednesday, December 30, the last night for this year’s event.
The Lights of Christmas is located at 20800 Marine Drive in Stanwood, a 90-minute drive north of Seattle and 50 minutes south of Bellingham, Washington.
