Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow! The WALLY Team is excited for one of the brightest holiday traditions in Seattle, WildLights at Woodland Park Zoo! The lights will be twinkling now until Jan. 4, 2015, so there’s plenty of time to invite your friends and family to come along for some holiday fun!

We’re looking forward to it so much that we’ll be there not just one night – but two! Join us on Dec. 11 and 12 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., where we’ll be taking FREE souvenir photos! But, that’s not all – there’s plenty to see and do at WildLights this year! Be sure to pop-in the Snowmazium to build a snow creature, hear a snow story or even start a snowball fight! Catch a ride on the Historical Carousel while listening to the songs of carolers fills the air. Whatever you choose to do, WildLights has fun for everyone!

If you aren’t in the Seattle area for the holidays, don’t fret – the WALLY Team has the inside scoop on the top five places where you can light up your silent nights all around the Northwest!

  1. Wenzel Farm Christmas Fantasy Trail- Oregon City, Ore.

Feeling adventurous? Stroll through an illuminated maze, accompanied by Christmas music to delight even the grumpiest Grinch. Find your way to the end, and warm up with a nightly bonfire that’ll be sure to awaken your holiday spirit.

  1. Portland's Christmas Ships- Portland, Ore. 

Feeling like you’ve seen it all? We’ve got something different for you! Be sure to attend the 60th anniversary of Portland’s Christmas Ships Parade. More than 60 decorated boats sail across the Columbia and Willamette rivers spreading holiday cheer wherever they will go!

  1. Garden d'Lights- Bellevue, Wash.

Featuring over half a million lights, watch as the Bellevue Botanical Garden transforms into a winter wonderland with light displays that sparkle and shine! Join other P-Patch People for this fun holiday tradition!

  1. Miracle of a Million Lights- Portland, Ore.

Enjoy 2.5 acres filled with over a million twinkling lights and tour inside the historic Victorian Belle. Inside, you’ll find an Elf Room, a Santa Room, 10 uniquely decorated Christmas trees and even a place for kids to make their own Christmas ornaments! May the sounds of the air fill with the joy of Christmas carolers while you warm up with a cup of hot cider!

  1. ZooLights- Tacoma, Wash. 

The Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium puts on a light show you won’t want to miss! Not only are there more than a half-million lights, you’ll be sure to see 3-D displays of a swooping bald eagle, a regal polar bear family and a Sumatran tiger head and that’s not all! Have you ever seen Santa Claus swim with sharks? Well, now you can! ZooLights has fun for the entire family and can easily become a holiday tradition for years to come.

And for all of our Supercharged Seahawks Fans, we’re bringing our Yellfie booth to the WildLights festivities for a chance to join our season-long competition in search of the loudest fan. Step into the booth and holler your heart out for a chance to win the top prize – two tickets and a VIP experience to the Dec. 28th game against the St. Louis Rams

Until then, may your holiday season be merry and bright, and we hope to see you this year at WildLights!
