MARYSVILLE – It was cold but not raining.

That led to hundreds of people going to Cedarcrest Golf Course over the weekend – not to play golf, but to see the Holiday Tour of Lights.

The event continues Wednesday through Saturday this week, along with Dec. 20-13 next week. Wednesdays were added this year so more could enjoy the event, which parks director Jim Ballew said could bring in 7,000 people this year.

The event, open from 5:30-9:30 p.m. or until tickets sell out, features a 20-minute ride aboard the Marysville Rotary Train.

The trains travel over rolling hills, passing through polar bear forest, minion village and other displays. You may even catch a glimpse of Santa. New displays include animated nature and march of the penguins displays. In addition to music at the “depot train station” and Santa’s Workshop, there will also be two new areas playing holiday music. You can also take keepsake pictures at the new family photo backdrop.

Then relax on the deck, sip hot cocoa, roast marshmallows and enjoy a free s’more. Admission is free, with donations accepted. For details, visit marysvillewa.gov or call 360-363-8400. The golf course is located at 6810 84th St. NE.
