November 14, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

We know that you can't plan a holiday event for every night of the year and there may be a weekend or two when you are looking to get out of the social scene and attend an event... let someone else do the planning! We have gathered some of the most interesting Holiday Events around Seattle for you and your family, you and your friends, you and a loved one, or even just you. 

 

Wildlights at Woodland Park Zoo

This is a new event this year and it sounds absolutely stunning. A magical and dazzling display of wild animals and wild places displayed in thousands of tiny LED lights inspired by nature. In addition to the sparkling light display, you can also participate in other activities such as 

  •  Experience amazing indoor and outdoor displays
  • Ride the zoo's Historic Carousel (additional fee)
  • See a few of our animal friends, including visiting reindeer
  • Enjoy festive snacks, fun and entertainment

This one is one of our favorite events because it is not only going to be a great show, but it is also extremely affordable!

Trans-Siberian Orchestra: The Lost Christmas Eve

This is no simple Christmas caroling orchestra performance. This is an all out rock concert laser light show that will blow your stockings off with an extraordinary punch. According to the show description, the show has been called "a story of loss and redemption and features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, Broadway, and R&B, which takes you on a journey into the "Capra-esque" world of TSO creator / producer, Paul O'Neill. Encompassing a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City, this year's show is sure to start any TSO fan's holiday season off right." 

Dates: Saturday, November 24 at 3 pm (presented by STAR 101.5) and 8 pm (presented by KZOK 102.5)

ELF- The Musical! At the 5th Avenue Theatre 

 
Buddy, a human raised at the North Pole by elves, sets off to the big city in search of his father.  What he finds is an alarming lack of Christmas Spirit.  Even his little brother doesn't believe in Santa! So Buddy sets out to help everyone remember the true meaning of Christmas, and (just like in the blockbuster film) eat as many things covered in syrup as possible.
 
Dates: November 30th - December 31st
