Shore Acres Holiday Lights
The Oregon coast is a many splendored place boasting unique sights and sounds that will amaze you anytime of the year. In this week’s “Grant’s Getaways,” we go to Shore Acres State Park along the southern Oregon coast for a unique holiday light extravaganza.
The park’s “Holiday Lights” offers the very best in community service and a wonderful holiday gift for you to enjoy. It’s safe to say that most holiday lights don’t hold a candle to the ones the Friends of Shore Acres State Park put up each year. The folks who show up each weekend beginning before Halloween and go the extra mile to light Oregon’s only botanical garden state park.
The Holiday Lights continue through New Year’s Eve, the park is open daily and closes each night at 10pm. There is no entry fee, but there is a three-dollar state park parking permit required.
Editor’s Note: Grant’s Getaways is a production of Travel Oregon brought to you in association with Oregon State Parks, Oregon Dept. of Fish & Wildlife and Oregon State Marine Board. Episodes air Fridays and Saturdays on KGW Newschannel 8 and Saturdays on Northwest Cable News Network.
