858 Kid activities at The Lights of Christmas Stanwood PNWYoung and old alike will be amazed and enchanted at The Lights of Christmas holiday festival in Stanwood, WA. There is so much to see and do, and with more being added this season, give yourself enough time to experience it all.

There are many fun activities at The Lights included with the cost of admission. The visit isn’t complete without a ride on the Polar Express Train. Once you ride the train, head over to Bruce the Spruce, the talking Christmas tree, to say “hi” and share a few jokes. Just around the bend is the Shepherd’s Keep—a petting farm featuring soft and gentle sheep, a llama, and goats. For the kids under four feet tall who love horses, pony rides are a must. New this year is the Natural Wonders Light Maze, an actual maze to make your way through, made entirely of lights!

And of course, Santa is at The Lights through December 23, talking with little visitors about their wish list. On the way, you might even see Frolaf the snowman and the Engineer Bear for a photo op.

Some activities have a modest additional cost. There is a very talented face painter across from the Polar Express Train in the downstairs lobby of Bayside Inn. Kids can try their own creativity and make ornaments in Joyland Ornament Shop and wooden toys at Elfland Toy Shop.
