Christmas Season Walk - Christmas Lights of Fir Grove

Let's get in the holiday spirit by doing festive walks in neighborhoods dressed up for the season.  Afterward we can find a spot for a hot toddy for additional cheer.

Everett’s Fir Grove Neighborhood Lights Up for Charity

Fir Grove is located just off 19th Ave SE n 100th ST SE near the Silver Lake Costco.  Beginning the second week of December, visitors can enjoy the Christmas lights every night until the end of the month.

Every year thousands of cars filled with wide-eyed holiday visitors make the slow drive through the brightly lit Fir Grove neighborhood in South Everett.  The 20-plus year tradition of houses illuminated with ridiculous amounts of Christmas lights and front yards decorated with holiday characters is a favorite annual event for man families in December.  Donations for the Everett Food Bank can be made at the welcome tent.

Vicki says "It does have quite a bit of traffic with people in their cars, but we walked around it with our dogs a couple of years ago and didn't have any trouble staying out of traffic."

 

 

For more than 25 years, residents in the Fir Grove Neighborhood of South Everett have put on one of the most popular Christmas lighting displays in the city. At the same time, neighbors have been raising cash and food donations for Volunteers of America. That tradition continues this year at the intersection of 21st Ave. SE and 104th Street SE. Five different neighbors take turns as Santa’s helpers from the week after Thanksgiving thru Christmas. Dozens of houses in the Fir Grove neighborhood are lit up with displays ranging from simple roof outlines to complete themes with lights set to music. Tour busses, limos and mini vans filled with families slowly drive thru the neighborhood taking in the sights. At the intersection of 104th and 21st SE a white tent holds bins filled with donations for the Volunteers of America food bank. Santa greets motorists and people walking the neighborhood, passing out candy canes and posing for pictures. For those who don’t have a food donation, cash is also accepted. If you plan on going, you should know that lines thru the neighborhood can stretch for several blocks and Christmas Eve is the busiest.

    We will meet at Eisenhower middle school and start walking at 7pm.
    Weather looks pretty good but bundle up.
    I scouted this area out a few days ago and we will have to walk along the main street for a few blocks before entering the fir grove neighborhood. There is a sidewalk on one side of the street for most of the way and there is a house set up to accept donations of food or money for the food bank if you wish to donate.
    If you dog is exciteable/anxious around crowds or cars may be a good one for it to sit out.
    Lights on yourself and your dog a good idea and of course poop bags.
    See you all later

    Would this be a good event to bring our dogs or because of how many people there's might be a good time to leave our puppies at home

      Dogs are welcome if they can handle the crowds/cars that may be there. There is a sidewalk to walk on and we usually spread out. Not sure how much other traffic there will be however.
