25th annual Fantasy Lights drive-thru experience opens Nov. 28

Starting Thanksgiving, you can drive-thru the magical holiday wonderland of Fantasy Lights at Spanaway Park, all in the warmth of your vehicle.

From 5:30 to 9 p.m. each night Nov. 28-Jan. 1, over 300 animated displays and thousands of holiday lights will illuminate the winding two-mile route along Spanaway Lake.

Vehicles filled with holiday revelers will enjoy the magical world of animation and imagination where bears fly kites, Santa and Rudolf sail a tall ship, snow boys kick field goals, penguins slide down an igloo, and reindeer leap over your car. Visitors will also marvel at the sparkling wonderland of LED lighting and new displays throughout the park, which include a new rocket ship, octopus, sea turtles and a giant clam. 

Whether it’s clear out or raining, pack the family in the vehicle and join Pierce County Parks for a dazzling light experience. To learn more, visit Fantasy Lights webpage

Entry is $15 per vehicle/mini-bus (up to 24 passengers) and $45 for each bus (25 or more passenger capacity). While supplies last, $12 discount tickets are available at the Lakewood Community Center and Sprinker Recreation Center. This year, special discount nights Dec. 1-5 will offer $8 entry per vehicle at the gate (not valid with buses). Learn more about Fantasy Lights admission.

In its 25th year, this light show is the largest holiday drive-thru display in the Northwest. Last year the event drew 193,756 people and a total of  29,770 vehicles.

Pierce County Parks kicked off the season with the Fantasy Lights Walk on Nov. 23. Spanaway Park is located at 14905 Bresemann Blvd. S. in Tacoma.
