Last night we drove to Lewiston to see the holiday light display at Locomotive park. The kids loved it.
The park is 17 acres in size, and every part of it has a light display and Christmas music. There is a pathway with lighted arches that runs through most of it, which is nice for strolling.
A few of the displays have coordinated music, including the huge Musical Tree. There is also a cute penguin display coordinated to “Lucy & Linus” by the Vince Guaraldi Trio (the “Charlie Brown” Christmas music) that the boys loved (my pictures were too blurry!).
Locomotive Park has a large outdoor gas fireplace by which you can warm up. It was a bit crowded, but had a nice community feel.
To see all of the lights could take as little as 15 minutes with kids, though they probably would have run around for an hour if we let them (it was cold, so we hurried them along). This outing would probably be best paired with something else in Lewiston if you are driving the 45 minutes from Pullman.
When you get into Lewiston from Pullman or Moscow, you will see the park on the right – there is no missing it! The park has plenty of free parking and has port-o-lets. The light display runs from the Saturday before Thanksgiving through the first Saturday after New Year’s Eve.
