Comments Off on Noteworthy Places to View Christmas Lights in Portland

2020 is finally ending! Before a year that many would classify as a terror comes to a close, we can at least all still have some holiday cheer. Although many holiday traditions are being altered or skipped this holiday season, there is still cheer to be found! In many places, including Portland, a festive activity that is still socially-distant is viewing Christmas lights around the town.

Whatever you’re looking for this year, there are multiple options for a festive outing either walking outdoors or driving past in your car. Check out the list below for the top spots to get lost in the twinkle of Christmas lights!

Winter Wonderland at Portland International Raceway 

Open until January 2nd, Winter Wonderland at Portland International Raceway is the largest light show in the Northwest. Lights span the entire track for a spectacular display. Tickets are sold by car and prices range from $20 to $25 depending on the night you visit. This is a drive-thru event but masks are also required when interacting with staff during check-in and when you need to exit your car to use the restroom.
