THE WINTER GLOW SPECTACULAR has been shining its holiday lights brightly since 2014, when it first set up in Riverfront Park. But it has settled nicely into its new home in Liberty Lake, at Orchard Park. Volunteers have put up the epic holiday light show for all to enjoy via the self-guided tour, and the free event runs through New Year's Day — Jan. 1, 2022.

The drive-through event takes you through Manito's back roads and runs Dec. 10-19. or
