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.
Candy Cane Lane in Ravenna (December 15 to New Year's)
This is by far the best one to drive through in Seattle for charming Christmas light displays. It's a free light display that you can walk or drive through in a loop put on by the neighbors of Park Road and Ravenna Boulevard.
Seattle is famous for a Ravenna neighborhood called—what else?—Candy Cane Lane. Making its first appearance in the 1940s in response to a city-wide decorating challenge, this fantastic neighborhood has since become a holiday must-see for Seattle families. It's location - the Christmas light display can be found at NE Park Road, off 20th Avenue NE and Ravenna Boulevard, near Ravenna Park - makes it an ideal spot to visit if you're in the mood for a night of shopping, food, entertainment, and of course, great views.
Please check email or this site the day of the event for any last minute changes or cancellations due to weather, road closures, illness, etc. I will try to post last minute details by 7am.
