Winter Magic Returns at the Pathway of Lights
A winter tradition for over 40 years, the Green Lake Pathway of Lights returns December 10, 2022, from 4:30-7:30 – transforming the lake path into a candelit wonderland. Falling on the second Saturday in December, Pathway of Lights illuminates Seattle’s darkest month with a night of good cheer.
Stroll the inner pathway lit with thousands of glimmering candles, and enjoy stations with complimentary cocoa, live seasonal music, and hot air balloons ascending from the Community Center ball fields.
Pathway of Lights is back after it was skipped in 2021 for the first time in 42 years.
The Hot Air Ballon Glow runs from 4:30-5:30 when weather allows. Organizers and sponsors include the Green Lake Advisory Council and with help from community partners, Lake & Company Real Estate, Green Lake Masons, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, PCC Community Markets, and Aegis.
