Renton Holiday Lights

Renton Holiday Lights, a free community display, returns this year to the city’s popular Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park. This display was formerly 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 new playground.

Renton will also put lights at Piazza Park and along South Third Street.

Dates: Nightly Dec. 3, 2022–Jan. 1, 2023 from 5–9 p.m. Stop by Friday, Dec. 2, starting at 6:30 p.m., for opening night festivities which include the arrival of Santa, a holiday singalong and a parade of Christmas ships!

Cost: Free and open to the public.

Next up: Wintertide Lights
