The Christmas season is in full swing around the Yakima Valley, and families everywhere are celebrating Christmas traditions together again. Some celebrate together for the first time since covid started, bringing back old family traditions and fun. However, some of the traditions started during covid are ones we look forward to now every year.

This of course includes the Holiday Light Festival happening down at the Central Washington Fairgrounds. 3O miles worth of lights strung up around the fairgrounds finding different themes and beautiful sights.

Is It Worth The Money?

Some families have been asking if this is worth adding to their holiday budget. Some argue that it's just a bunch of lights however, it is so much more. After taking a trip myself through the Fairgrounds and I can tell you without a doubt it is worth it. Even if you haven't gotten a chance to go yet, this is a Christmas tradition for any family, big or small. You can pack all the kids into the car or your fur babies and drive around listening to Christmas Music and seeing all the beautiful details in the lights. Not to mention there's something for everyone, old-fashioned Christmas, a Grinch Christmas, and even a Dino Christmas.
