Fantasy Lights

By weeklyvolcano on November 27, 2006

Although the name "Fantasy Lights" might denote less wholesome entertainment, especially in Spanaway.  But actually, a night spent on a short drive in a warm car couldn't be more family friendly.

Fantasylightsone The Pacific Northwest's largest holiday light drive-through event is open for cars, mini vans and buses through December at Pierce County Parks and Recreation's 12th annual Fantasy Lights display at Spanaway Park. It is expected to be viewed by more than 125,000 adults and children by the time it closes on New Year's Eve.

The drive-through display features nearly 300 elaborate displays and thousands of sparkling lights during the two-mile route along the shores of Spanaway Lake.

New attractions include Santa's Skyway Express, Bulb Blitz, and a tribute to public servants. 

Fantasylightstwo The drive is open seven days a week from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the gate for $13 per car/van or $45 for a tour bus.  Advance discount tickets cost $10 per car/van and may be purchased at the Lakewood Community Center or Sprinker Recreation Center
