As the winter season arrives, so does its demands. Shoveling the driveway, wearing extra layers of clothing and cranking up the heat. But for the folks at the Warm Beach Camp in Stanwood, Washington, putting up over one-million Christmas lights is just part of their winter routine. Starting in 1996 as a small winter celebration, The Lights of Christmas has since become one of the premier Northwest Christmas traditions.

The Pacific Northwest’s largest light display combines children’s activities, live entertainment, food, holiday shopping and much more to create a whimsical wintertime event.

Located about 60 minutes north of Seattle, Washington, the Warm Beach Camp becomes a winter wonderland filled with endless activities that’ll put any Scrooge in the Christmas spirit. Take a ride on the Polar Express, build your own toy at the Elfland toy shop, talk to Bruce the Spruce, the talking Christmas tree, or get your picture taken with Santa.

With a variety of entertainment every night, such as youth choirs, folk bands and storytellers, you will never have a dull moment walking through the 15-acre spectacle. Sip a hot chocolate and listen to the Night before Christmas, or munch on some kettle corn or donuts while listening to Christmas classics performed live.

The holiday atmosphere is always alive at The Lights of Christmas. Put on your winter coat and create some everlasting memories with your friends or family.
