The best way to watch the lighting ceremony — from the lake

The Holiday Lighting Ceremony downtown Coeur d’Alene is one the most magical times of the year. Taking place the Friday after Thanksgiving, the ceremony kicks off the winter season. The entire Resort and floating boardwalk is lit up with hundreds of thousands of holiday lights, depicting different scenes: dragon, an underwater castle, and, of course, Santa Clause and all his reindeer!

The lighting ceremony kicks off with a firework show and music before the annual lights are turned on.

The best way to see this magical sight is from one of Coeur d’Alene Cruises’ vessels, floating on the water under the stars! What better way to take in the full scene and fireworks show, and stay toasty warm with a cup of hot coco! The event is fun for the whole family.
