Come Enjoy a WinterWonderland Experience

2013 Dates: November 28th - December 25th

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

Since 1993, a journey through Winter Wonderland has become a Holiday tradition for many families, friends, and social organizations to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season. Spectators can enjoy the most spectacular drive-through light show in the region, viewing over 250 colorful light set pieces and many fully animated scenes from the comfort of their own vehicle.

Over two million visitors have taken the Winter Wonderland journey since its origin, helping to contribute over $551,000 and over 41 tons (82,000 pounds) of food to the Sunshine Division.

In 2010 we had our 2 Millionth Visitor

One of the region's favorite holiday traditions, Winter Wonderland powered by Comcast, welcomed its 2 millionth visitor in 2010. Morgan Hall of Beaverton was driving the winning vehicle accompanied by his wife Christina and their two young children. "We come here every year," said Hall, "but this is extra special, especially since it's the first year for our 6-month old son." The Jubitz Corporation provided a prize package for the Hall family that included a complete "Jubitz experience" - lodging, meals, movies and entertainment. Alpha Broadcasting contributed overnight accommodations at Cannon Beach at the Tolavana Inn and dinners at area restaurants.
