Through Sunday, Jan. 1: Fantasy Lights

Spanaway County Park

By Volcano Staff on November 22, 2011

We don't know about you, but we've always preferred our attractions to be glowing, neon, herky-jerky monsters that come out in the wintertime and help break up those long winter doldrums. (Joke.) Thankfully, Fantasy Lights has been granting our wish for 17 years now, and it remains a truly delightful event to look forward to when that chilling bite starts to fill the air. The two and a quarter mile long parade of lit-up scenery has its own peculiar sense of majesty, and it goes without saying that it's the perfect treat for a family to soak up the holiday spirit.
