Feedback: Thoughts on Winter Glow Spectacular

Spokane lit up a new tradition at Riverfront Park last week with Winter Glow Spectacular, a series of 30 lighted displays set up around the park. The displays are free and will be open nightly from 5 to 9 p.m. through Jan. 1. We asked our Facebook friends if they thought it would catch on. Here’s what they said:

Liz Thorland

I hope so! It was so nice to see the lights and all the people down there.

Cassie Morgan

We hope so. The kids loved it and so did my husband and I. Well worth the rain and wind.

Ashley Holman

I pray Spokane can keep this classy. I miss Spokane being a great family town. I can’t wait to take my son!

Theresa Schimmels

I noticed it driving down Washington tonight. Looks gorgeous!

Laurel Henderson

My second cousin, Jerry Schmidt, is the guy who made this all happen. I can’t wait to see it when I come to Spokane for Christmas!

Brie Edwards

I really hope so. It will be wonderful for families to see and even more impressive if we get any snow.

Ann E Ganz

Hope so. Was a bummer to see the Qualchan display get discontinued.

Rachael Simmons

If Lewiston can manage their huge display I think Spokane can do it. But they have a ways to catch up to their Winter Spirit display!

Lona Barnum

First Night Spokane, The Downtown Spokane Partnership and Riverfront Park provided the lighting on the Rotary Fountain, the Carrousel and the trees in front of the Carrousel. We started that last year. Having the additional lighting provided by this organization is truly a nice touch to the overall presentation for the holidays.
