Renton Winter Lights
Renton Winter Lights, a free community display, returns this year to the city’s popular Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park. (Some families may remember the light display at this park was once known as Clam Lights.) Lights decorating dozens of trees and shrubs along a walkable path dress up the scenic waterfront park which sits on the southern edge of Lake Washington. If you pop in before dark, be sure to stop for a play session at the fantastic playground.
Dates: Friday, Dec. 1, is opening night. Starting at 6 p.m., enjoy special opening-night festivities including the arrival of Santa, a holiday sing-along and great view of the passing Christmas Ships! Renton Winter Lights will be on display nightly, Dec. 2, 2023–Jan. 1, 2024, 4–9 p.m.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
