Pierce County Fantasy Lights offers family fun, new displays

About 5,000 people have visited Fantasy Lights — the light show by the lake — since the annual event opened on Nov. 24. The beautiful 2.25-mile drive is held nightly from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. through Jan. 1, 2012 at Spanaway County Park, 14905 Gus G. Bresemann Boulevard in Spanaway, just west of 152nd/Military Road and SR 7 (Pacific Ave). For directions, visit http://www.co.pierce.wa.us/pc/abtus/ourorg/parks/flights.htm#Directions . New to the Northwest’s largest drive-through light display is a Gingerbread Playground with gingerbread people jumping ropes, swinging on swings and going up and down on a seesaw. The layout of the park is different each year with new displays and color themes. The long tunnel of lights in the center of the park is a big hit this year. In its 16th year, Fantasy Lights is South Sound tradition for many families and a first-time experience for military families who are new to the area. The fee per car is $13; $28 for a mini bus (16-24 passenger); and $45 per bus (25+ passengers).
