WEST SEATTLE LIGHTS: 8th season starts Thanksgiving night

(WSB photo)

Rain or shine, the show must go on, and Thanksgiving night, it will do just that at 3908 SW Charlestown, home of West Seattle Lights. We stopped by late today to say hi to Jim Winder, programming a synchronized holiday-lights-and-music show for the eighth year at his friends’ house across from the water tower. Jim was doing a bit of last-minute troubleshooting but says it’s all set to go for the first night, 7-10 pm Thursday. Again this year, West Seattle Lights invites donations to the West Seattle Food Bank (you can bring nonperishable food to drop in the bin out front, too) and Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation – none of the donations go toward the show, just directly to those organizations. The WSL website hasn’t yet been updated for this year (the lights come first, and Jim does a show in Maple Valley too) but the schedule is the same one you’ll find on this page, after the special 7 pm-10 pm hours Thanksgiving night.

      The address and map are on the West Seattle Lights’ “directions” page: http://westseattlelights.com/directions.htm

      Also note – we’ll be including this in today’s daily highlights – both of the shows will be collecting cash donations tonight through Sunday for the family of the Tacoma police officer killed in the line of duty this week. – TR
