The holidays are the only time of the year when it's appropriate to point at a dead plant and expect a kiss. Channel your mistletoe horticultural failure into romance, then reward yourself with today's Groupon, which scores you admission and hot chocolate at the 23rd Annual Christmas Festival of Lights at The Grotto in Sumner. Choose one of the following options:
- For $10, you get two adult tickets ($16) and two hot chocolate drink tickets (a $20 value)
- For $3, you get one child's ticket ($4) and one hot chocolate drink ticket (a $6 value)
The Festival starts Thursday, November 26, and it runs every night through December 30. This Groupon is not valid December 16–25.
A cherished local holiday tradition, The Christmas Festival of Lights transforms The Grotto into a glittering wonderland illuminated by more than half-a-million lights. With this deal, you'll gain admission to this grand spectacle, plus the necessary hot chocolate to sip while one of the world's largest choral festivals has singers belting out glorious carols such as "O Holy Night" and "Santa, Look Out Behind You!" Younglings, meanwhile, will delight in the festival’s whimsical puppet shows, petting zoo for kids, and much more. And pet owners who like to dress pets in garish wool holiday sweaters are welcome to bring their animal buddies or seeing-eye rhinos on a leash to the festivities.
The Grotto's Christmas Festival of Lights’ popular choral groups were featured by Outlook online last year:
- Since the festival’s inception in 1988, choir directors from around the region have regularly praised the “exceptional acoustics” present in The Grotto’s 600-seat Chapel of Mary, officials said. – Rob Cullivan, Outlook
