Where to see Christmas Lights in Portland, OR

By Dill Ward, December 2, 2020

Whether you started humming Christmas tunes well before Thanksgiving. or are having trouble getting in the mood with how difficult and different this holiday season is, here’s a few places to check out safely from your car to experience the pure magic of thousands of twinkly lights illuminating the dark night.

Winter Wonderland at the Portland International Raceway
opens 11/27/20 and is a fundraiser for Sunshine Division, which provides food and clothing to Portland families in need.

ZooLights Drive-Thru Experience at the Oregon Zoo
Holiday display opens 11/22 and will run until 1/10/21, but will be closed on Christmas Day.

Pioneer Courthouse Square
It’s up now! Check it out.

Main street in Tigard “Light the Night” events all week long.

• Peacock Lane is closed this year (booo)

While we’re on the topic, how about going all out this year, and lighting up your street!!

I highly recommend adding a few strands of the LED sparkle to your own abode. There are dozens of companies who’ve popped working as light installers. I say splurge a little, lift your spirits, and let someone else climb the tall ladder!


Have you ever tried Task Rabbit? They have all kinds of helpers you can schedule and pay through the app. Look under “Decoration Help”,  I’ll even get you started with your first ten bucks off!

If I missed any places to see lights, or any of your neighbors have gone overboard, I need to know about it! email me.

Oregon Principal Broker | Digital Marketing & Negotiation Expert


I’m always honored to be invited into someone’s home to allow them to speak aloud their hopes & dreams. My strategy brain goes straight to plotting the course, while my coaching heart delivers thoughtful questions to learn more about the fears & concerns keeping my client up at night. As a Realtor for 15 years, landlord managing my own rental portfolio, certified master negotiator, digital marketing expert, and social media influencer, I'd still say my superpower is bringing a tidal wave of positivity and energy to each new opportunity. I absolutely love real estate, and I love people even more. Buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction, it’s an emotional experience of leaping into the unknown to discover what you really want next in your life. Having a Realtor who understands THIS & also kicks butt at marketing & negotiating is a next level experience! I’ve personally moved 9 times in 12 years (by choice & with proper planning each time), in pursuit of exploration & curiosity about how life would expand in each new home. This has given me great project management skills to orchestrate many different contractors to make miracles happen in a short amount of time. Not to mention pretty epic home organizing, planning, packing, & moving tricks. I've taken this experience to write 2 books titled: “Your Dream Home: The Ultimate Guide on Buying a House to Inspire the Next Version of You" & "Getting to Sold! - What you need to know to get the highest price with the least stress when selling your Portland Home .”   Email me for a free copy of either! My background is in graphic design, advertising, psychology & sales. I have a passion for technology, building community, and personal development. I’ve sold over 500 homes yet strive to treat each client as if they are my only. As of this writing, I reside in NW Portland, Oregon where I’m re-imaging & remodeling a mid-century home to a modern masterpiece with my husband, daughter, and cat. Let's book a meeting and talk about your goals!
