About the Event

Recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest as the “Largest Holiday Light Show West of the Mississippi”, the 21st annual Jubitz Winter Wonderland – Powered by Comcast will grab your attention with glimmers and glows around every corner.

Since 1993, a journey through the Winter Wonderland of Lights has become a Holiday tradition for many families, friends, and social organizations to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season. Traditional favorite light displays include 12 Days of Christmas, Santa jumping down an 84 foot ski slope, reindeer flying over the race track, and the vivid color of the giant poinsettia arch.

Participants can enjoy the most spectacular light show in the region, viewing over 250 colorful light set pieces and many fully animated scenes as they run or walk through the Winter Wonderland of Lights.
