Strolling through Clam Lights is a holiday favorite in Renton, and it’s back again this year until Jan. 1, from 5 to 9 p.m. each night.
The 200,000 holiday light spectacular illuminated Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park and reflected on the waters below of Lake Washington. The Clam Lights loop along the shore and dock includes candy cane lights, decorated trees and running clams.
On opening night, Dec. 6, Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and the elves, the Ivar’s Clam and characters from Disney’s “Frozen” were all in attendance. Lindbergh High School’s Vocal Jazz Ensemble performed for the crowd before a welcome from Mayor-Elect Armondo Pavone and the official lighting.
Next to the bonfire pit in the north part of the park, visitors had a singalong to some classic holiday tunes, and a performance from Spotlight Dance. Near the end of the evening a parade of boats from Rainier Yacht Club showed off their holiday lights.
