Winter Lights Festival brightens Portland’s rainy season


The 5th-annual event is free and family-friendly

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Portland Winter Lights Festival gives the community a cheerful boost during some of the rainiest, dreariest months of the year.

The fifth-annual event takes place Feb. 6-8 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. along each side of the Willamette River, including OMSI, the Eastbank Esplanade and Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

Artists create huge, energy-efficient displays that are family-friendly. Many are also interactive. The festival also features live performances, educational programs and fire sculptures.

The free event is organized by the Willamette Light Brigade, a non-profit arts organization dedicated to connecting and enriching the community.
