Lumaze: Lost in Lights Comes to Seattle

Lumaze: Lost in Lights— the all-indoor Christmas festival and market— is making its debut this holiday season at Pier 91 on Seattle’s new Waterfront. From November 28, 2019, to January 5, 2020, this sparkling new event will allow people to laugh, stroll and play under the twinkle of a million lights.

Attendees can escape the winter elements and enjoy nearly 100,000 sq. feet of beautiful light displays set inside Smith Cove Cruise Terminal. The festive environment is fully enclosed, perfect for families, friends or dates, and also offers a Christmas market, interactive light maze, food, beverage and live entertainment. There’s truly something for everyone at this holiday festival. 

“It’s the ideal place to plan annual holiday get-togethers and parties or celebrate birthdays or anniversaries,” said Kristi Savoy, the Lumaze Seattle Event Supervisor. “We love to provide our guests with an environment where they can create memorable moments and new traditions.” And there is no shortage of memorable opportunities to be had. Guests can expect illuminated structures perfect for photos, interactive activities and playgrounds especially for kids, and plenty of options for adults to kick-back at bars and enjoy seasonal beverages and live music. Local culinary options will be highlighted, as well as a festive holiday market to take care of any shopping lists. 

Lumaze also gives back to the communities they operate in by creating fundraising opportunities during the event. “We use local vendors for the marketplace and food and beverage options, and engage local charities, organizations and entertainers to ensure the event is uniquely Seattle.” said Savoy.  Local vendors and entertainers, charities, or sponsors and ambassadors interested in the event are encouraged to apply online. 

This glittering event will provide the fun and festivities, without the stress. Included on the website are suggested arrival times, to minimize entry waits, and there will be ticket control for each day the market is open to ensure that it is never too crowded. A parking shuttle will also be provided to and from designated event lots. 

Lumaze: Lost in Lights will bring all of the magic and wonder of an outdoor Christmas festival, hosted inside the warm and spacious venue at the Seattle Waterfront Pier 91.

Batter Up! Baseball Season Is In Full Swing

A sure sign that spring has arrived is the start of baseball season. Taking in a game is a memorable family-friendly outing that can be fun for all ages. If you’re looking for an easy option to find top caliber athletic play in a stadium that gives fans up-close viewing and helps you stick to your budget, check out the Tacoma Rainiers at Cheney Stadium.

The Tacoma Rainiers, the Triple-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, have a veteran-heavy roster and three of the Mariners Top 25 prospects, as ranked by Baseball America. These up-and-coming stars are sure to show off major league talent to impress even the most dedicated baseball fans.

You’ll get extra bang for your buck by attending a game on a promotional night. Every Friday home game, and the July 3rd game, ends with a spectacular fireworks show. Saturday and Sunday games give kids a chance to run the bases like a pro. Other game nights highlight foster families, the armed forces, first responders, your favorite Washington college, and more!

Several new concessions stands will tempt your taste buds beyond the standard park fare of hot dogs, popcorn, and candy. Hibachi-style rice bowls, a rotating menu of bratwurst, and fried breaded cauliflower are a few of the more sophisticated offerings. If it’s easier to feed the family before you get to the park, some games offer a ticket and meal package in partnership with Chick-fil-A or Little Caesars Pizza.

A few other helpful tips to get the most out of your family’s game day:

  • If you have little ones who have a hard time sitting for long periods, take them to the playground or grassy berm area to run around. Both areas let you keep one eye on your child and one on the game.
  • Outside food and drink aren’t allowed in the stadium, except water, which must be in a sealed clear plastic bottle.
  • Gates open 60-90 minutes early to watch warm ups and maybe score an autograph from a player or photo with team mascot, Rhubarb The Reindeer!
