This weekend was my third trip to the Warm Beach Lights of Christmas!
If you live in the Northwest, you MUST take the drive up to beautiful Stanwood, Washington and see an amazing show of lights, plus TONS more activities! You will not be disappointed, trust me!!!
So, what’s so awesome about the The Lights of Christmas? Let me tell you by the numbers……
93 – Days it takes to set up the event. Set-up begins the day after Labor Day and lasts until opening night
475 – Kilowatts of electricity used. The highest measure in years past was 510 kilowatts, before transitioning to more LED lights
18,000 – Light strands, enough to stretch from Warm Beach to Qwest Field
75,000 – Zip ties used in hanging the decorations
1,200,000 – Lights, at least, that is where we stopped counting
