Fabulous Food at The Lights of Christmas Holiday Festival

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!

Group Getaway at The Lights

RegalMajestyatTheLightsofChristmasRegal Majesty is one of the many groups who have made an overnight getaway to The Lights of Christmas an annual tradition. The pageant royalty love coming to The Lights as a group and having the time to sleep over, usually staying up late and talking well into the night. During the festival the young ladies have a blast taking a group photo with Santa, telling jokes with Bruce the Spruce, making crafts, riding the Polar Express, and eating donuts. They’ve even been spotted dancing with Engineer Bear and Frolaf, the snowman! Coming to The Lights is, as Regal Majesty director, Monica, states, “a magical place.”

Dancing with Frolaf is not required to bring your group or family to The Lights of Christmas for a special getaway. But it could be fun! Senior centers, family reunions, and social clubs all enjoy their group getaway here as a time to take delight in the entertainment, light displays, fun, and food. It is a great deal that includes lodging, admission to the festival, breakfast, and free parking.

Reserve your special getaway at The Lights online at WarmBeachLights.com/Stay-Overnight or by calling 800.228.6724.

An inspiring and entertaining classic at Holiday Theatre

HolidayTheatre at The LightsThe Lights of Christmas presents, It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play, opening December 4. This inspiring and entertaining holiday classic comes to life as radio theatre at The Lights of Christmas, with a fresh interpretation that has the audience completely caught up in the tale of despair and redemption. You will be transported back to Bedford Falls as the beloved George Bailey is frustrated by financial crises and setbacks. Through the twist and turns of George’s life, you find yourself agonizing with him while cheering him on. The heartwarming ending showcases the love of family and community that is sure to leave you with the ringing of angels getting their wings echoing in your heart.

Play Director, Victoria Ritchey, states, “This is a beautiful story that gives us all worth and value. With the setting of a radio drama, it becomes a history lesson for some, and a pleasant reminder of childhood for others. All ages will enjoy watching and listening to the sound effects being created.” It is important to Victoria to present stories of value and hope, with a high degree of quality. “Giving the audience a special evening to relax, be pampered with a lovely meal, have a few laughs and take home something to think about, is our goal.

Critics across the country have hailed Joe Landry’s award-winning play adaption of It’s a Wonderful Life. Now, you too can experience this outstanding production in the Baylight Room at The Lights of Christmas. December 4-6, 11-13, 18-20 with Dinner Theatre featuring a five course meal and the play. Sundays feature a Dessert Matinee in the afternoons of December 7, 14, and 21. Reservations may be made at www.WarmBeachLights.com/Holiday-Theatre or by phone at 800.228.6724 ext. 2282.
