While at Manito Park today, I walked through the Observatory and HOLY COW! I did not know they decorate the place with 30,000 lights. It is only lit up until this Sunday. Great family activity. Maybe stop and get a hot cocoa after. Very beautiful. Best of all, it's FREE! We were there during the day, I can't imagine what it would look like after 4pm, when it gets dark here in Spokane. Here is the information below... This picture isn't that great, but maybe you can get the idea. It's a poinsettia Christmas tree.
