858-Joyland-Cafe-at-The-LightsSteamed cheeseburgers? Yes, they do exist and the buns are not soggy! Originating in Connecticut during the 1920s, this New England classic makes its debut among the Grub Hub food vendors at The Lights of Christmas in Stanwood, WA. You will find lots of other fabulous food vendors as well. Papa’s Wood Fire Pizza, which became a favorite last year, returns with their Italian specialty. Crunchy sweet Kettle Korn, hot seafood chowder, and Philly steak sandwiches—is your mouth watering yet? You’ll have to save room for a sweet treat such as elephant ears, funnel cake, or deep fried Oreos. S & T Espresso has a wide array of hot drinks to accompany whatever you choose to eat.

You can also enjoy indoor dining and live country entertainment when you eat at Tinhorn Town. Menu options include pulled pork sandwiches, BBQ chicken wings, mashed potatoes, garden wraps, salad, and cobbler for dessert. Your food options continue at Joyland Café which features teriyaki chicken skewers with rice, clam chowder, bread bowls, cheesy broccoli or curry coconut soup, and chicken wingdings, and more. If you prefer just a bite with coffee or cocoa, stop in at the Starry Night Coffeehouse and enjoy the ambience of live music.

Don’t think we forgot the famous mini-donuts! These tasty donuts are made at the Donut Hut right before your eyes and come out hot and ready to devour. You might have to get an extra bag to take home!
