We also enjoy the free lights, displays, and hot chocolate and cookies at the Aspen Meadows ‘Celebration of Lights’, in Colton, OR. We go every year – it’s a tradition! They always have a different theme and displays each year. They have a kids’ candy cane lane, a big walk in “snow globe”, live music, and an old fashioned miniature train village. It’s way out in the middle of nowhere, but soooo worth it!
Another tradition for my family – The Festival of the Nativities in Vancouver, WA. This even is also free, and is a great way to focus on the “true reason for the season”. They have hundreds of nativities from all around the world, concerts, live nativity scenes, and a great kids’ room with crafts and activities, like a station where kids can dress up in nativity costumes and take their picture in a stable scene.

A must-do free event that is only every other year is Storybook Lane south of Forest grove in Dilley. It’s a family run event every other year on the odd year. A must do this year. It’s been going on for many, many decades. You will be very impressed!!! :-) Visit their Facebook page for more details.

If you do a follow up for Christmas events, Alpenrose dairy has Christmas in Dairyville on their 2013 calendar. I have not contacted them to verify, but it is a free, fun event for the family!

Please add the Shore Acres State Park Holiday Lights in Coos Bay to the Oregon Coast list. The lights are free, but there is a $5 parking permit required if you don’t have a pass or campground receipt.
