Here’s all the information on Fantasy Lights for 2020, including Fantasy Lights discounts.
This year Fantasy Lights runs
November 21, 2020 – January 3, 2021 5:30-9:00 p.m. at Spanaway Park
If you’re new to the area, you may not know about this Lakewood area light display, so here’s all the scoop!
Fantasy Lights at Spanaway Lake is a drive-thru light show that is one of the Tacoma area’s favorite family holiday traditions. Yes, it’s open this year, and with Covid precautions closing so many other events, it’s been SUPER popular.
Here’s all you need to know! Be sure to read the TIPS section straight from our friends at Pierce County Parks. My advice if you don’t want to wait in a long line is to go on a non-discount weeknight. My family likes to go after Christmas.
As you drive by the displays you can tune your car radio to special Christmas music played by local school groups.
The light displays themselves are traditional Christmas themes, and they have a more old-fashioned, homespun feel than you might find at a sleeker light display. Honestly, that’s one of the many things we love about Fantasy Lights. It’s just a sweet, magical outing, especially with your little ones.
Do know that some nights, especially weekends, can have long waits of up to an hour. You can also expect a bit more traffic than usual on half-off nights. My family has always gone on a Sunday late in the season, and we’ve never had to wait at all. You can always bring along a tin of cookies and some cocoa!
Need A Quick Exit?
Finally, while I think this is a sweet family outing for just about everyone, if you do have a child with sensory issues, or fears of the dark, it may not be for you. SFM Tip: If you find yourself in a meltdown mid-drive, signal to one of the flaggers around the route, and they will try to help you exit sooner.
Online vehicle admission tickets may be used for any night, however, if the purchased ticket value is less than the gate admission fee on the night you are attending you will be charged the difference in price at the gate. A limited number of online tickets are available. If a date does not appear on the ticket purchasing site, that date is sold out.
