The Lights of Christmas Trivia

The Lights of Christmas is on its way! The team is currently transforming the 14-acres of Warm Beach Camp into the dazzling wonderland of The Lights of Christmas. Here are some interesting facts about the event and its history.

  •  In 2022, nearly 100,000 individual mini donuts in about 14,000 bags were sold during the event! Yum!
  • It takes both staff and volunteers approximately 85 days to set up The Lights of Christmas. In addition, we have volunteers that work throughout the year sorting, testing, and repairing lights in preparation for the event!
  • The biggest night for cars was in 2021 with 1,348 cars in one evening!
  • 1.5 million people have attended the event since 1997.
  • Nearly 40 miles of extension cords power up all of the displays.
  • There are approximately enough light strands (at least 18,000) to stretch from Stanwood to Qwest Field stadium in Seattle. That’s over 1.2 million lights! We quit counting after that.
  • People come from all over to experience The Lights of Christmas. We have had guests from the Puget Sound and Lower Mainland, not to mention other US states, and as far away as Europe, Australia, South America, and Africa. Last year there were attendees from 87 Washington cities, 41 other states and Canada.
  • In the development of The Lights of Christmas, Warm Beach Camp staff traveled to Nashville in the 90’s to attend Opryland Theme Park’s lighted event. There, Bruce the Spruce was inspired! He is now an event icon!
