In preparation for one of the best activities to do this winter in Coeur d’Alene, the town of Coeur d’Alene is preparing for one of the most anticipated events of the year — the Holiday Lighting Ceremony!
On the day following Thanksgiving, the city of Coeur d’Alene comes together to formally start off the winter season, which takes place every year. Many reasons contribute to this celebration’s popularity among families, which includes a procession followed by an outdoor lighting ceremony on the lake. Please continue reading below for more details about this exceptional event.
The Specifics of the Event
The annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony in downtown Coeur d’Alene takes place the day after Thanksgiving every year in the same location. It features a large parade through the city streets, and at the conclusion, all of the lights along the water are switched on while fireworks explode over the lake to celebrate. A very lovely moment where you and your family may gather together to celebrate the spirit of the season and usher in the season of winter.
Turn your visit to Dockside for dinner and a gooey first into a habit that includes some shopping on the streets and a delicious hot chocolate from one of the several coffee stands. A trip through the park is also an option, where you can admire the millions of glittering lights strung among the trees and along paths. If you’re seeking for a truly magnificent event, though, you can also take the family out on a ship to witness the lighting of the fireworks.
Boat Cruise for the Lighting Ceremonies
If you want to be right in the middle of the Lake Coeur d’Alene fireworks display, then the Lighting Ceremony Boat Cruise with Coeur d’Alene Cruises is the perfect choice for you. It will take you right to the heart of the action.
Anyone, young or old, is welcome to join part on the Lighting Ceremony Cruise, making it the ideal event for the entire family to enjoy. Everyone is encouraged to come and enjoy hot beverages while looking out over the railing at the lights flashing across the downtown skyline and beyond. As the fireworks explode above you during the official ceremony, you’ll have the impression that you’ve been transported to a fantastic realm!
After that, it’s off to the North Pole, where the event will conclude. The North Pole, which is located just offshore, is where you and your family will find Santa and his Elves, who will be waiting to read off the bad and nice lists to you.
