Seattle is not short of holiday magic. By that, we mean, there's plenty of festivals, night markets and general merry cheer making its rounds to get you into the spirit. But if you want to add one more to your list, Lumaze, Seattle's new light festival opens next week. And it promises a "million" lights to make you believe in magic. 

The festival throws open its doors on November 29 and will stay through January 4, 2020. You can purchase your tickets for $19.99 per person (we also found you a Groupon here, you're welcome).

If sparkly, fairy lights are your thing, you'll want to be here. It boasts of a light garden with hundreds of string lights suspended from the ceiling and a tunnel of lights you can stroll through hand-in-hand with your SO. 

There are also multiple photo ops with gigantic, suspended picture frames to get your IG game in order. If you want to feel like a kid again, get warm on those LED swings. 

The team behind the event can reportedly help you set something up if a dreamy proposal is in order. 

The entire event is indoors, so you won't have to worry about soggy mittens, but it's recommended that you wear layers.

If you want to stay toastier, you can grab a hot cocoa or some boozy drinks in lit-up bulbs. There will be over 30 local vendors selling one-of-a-kind holiday knick-knacks. They are handmade, so you won't find them in stores.

The best part? Seattle's sought-after food trucks will sort you out of your hunger pangs.

Here, you can take your pick — everything from divine acai bowls and red velvet mini donuts to Christmas dumplings, sizzling treats straight from the Wok, and some good ol' Belgium waffles.

Since the event is at the pier and parking is limited, it's recommended that you use public transportation. But if you'd rather drive, you can save a spot for $15. There are also shuttles from parking lots.


Price: $19.99, discounted with a Groupon that you can get here

When: Friday, November 29, 2019, to Saturday, January 4, 2020

Address: Smith Cove Cruise Terminal at Pier 91, 2001 W Garfield Way, Seattle, WA

Why You Need To Go: To bring in the holidays under a "million" lights + savor from a variety of food trucks indoors
