Bundle up warm and drive carefully — snow is in the forecast, which could make for a perfectly scenic setting — if you head out to the opening weekend of this new Inland Northwest holiday event, the third year of the Winter Glow Spectacular. The bright and festive light display for all ages to enjoy has relocated this year from Riverfront Park to the Spokane County fairgrounds due to park construction. New features to check out include fireworks shows (Dec. 17-18), a visit to Santa’s North Pole workshop and a holiday light maze. The opening celebration on Friday night includes a fireworks show after a 6 pm opening ceremony.
Dec. 9-11, 15-23 and 26-30, from 4-10 pm • $5/ages 7-13, seniors, military; $7/adults • Spokane County Fair & Expo Center • 404 N. Havana • spokanewinterglow.com
