Fantasy Lights at Spanaway Park

Fantasy Lights is an expansive drive-through light show, delighting families for over 25 years with hundreds of sparkling holiday scenes along the shore of Spanaway Lake in Spanaway Park. Visitors remain in their cars and drive the winding, 2-mile route through the park, surrounded by lights. Guests can purchase a set of 3D glasses ($6) to enhance their light-viewing; order them with your tickets and pick them up at the entry. As you drive, tune your car radio to AM 1700 for accompanying holiday music.

Back for 2022, enjoy the Fantasy Lights display on foot on two special nights. The Fantasy Lights Walk takes place Saturday–Sunday, Nov. 19–20. Buy tickets for a 4:30 or 7 p.m. session in advance and get your workout in strolling the 2-mile route on foot. Note strollers and wheelchairs are welcome; no skates, scooters, bikes, skateboards or dogs (except trained service animals).

Dates: Open nightly Nov. 25, 2022–Jan. 1, 2023 (including holidays). Hours are 5:30–9 p.m. 

Cost: Tickets start at $15 per vehicle; entry on premium nights costs $20 per vehicle. Discount nights are Nov. 28–Dec. 1 and Dec. 26–Jan. 1, when tickets are $10 per vehicle.
