Green Lake Pathway of Lights
One of my favorite nights in Green Lake is the Green Lake Pathway of Lights. The entire 2.8 mile Green Lake loop is illuminated with luminaries, carolers and cider/hot cocoa stations.

Insider Tip: Bring some food for the food bank collections that will be going on around the lake.

For more information, go to the Pathway of Lights Facebook page.

December 14 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.
PhinneyWood Phestivus PhinneyWood’s slightly off-kilter holiday celebration returns with glowing monkeys, free trolley rides and some really ugly sweaters. Nearly 200 LED-lit monkeys adorn businesses along Phinney and Greenwood avenues throughout the month of December. From 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., the monkeys will be the highlight of PhinneyWood Phestivus, a neighborhood holiday party that will include a variety of “phestivities,” from art, food and ugly sweaters.

Route: Phinney Ave N and Greenwood Ave N, from the Zoo to 87th
