by Emerson The Christmas Parade In Idaho That’s Unlike Any Other In The World
Every year, the town of Coeur d’Alene puts on a truly unique Christmas event that is a must-see for any Idahoan. It’s during this time of year that Lake Coeur d’Alene lights up with a beautiful holiday light show. On top of that, a boat parade departs every evening to create a spectacular experience onlookers will remember for a lifetime. Watch it from afar or get the best seat in the house and book a ride on one of the holiday boats. Either way, this is a spectacular sight that must be seen with your own eyes!
One of the "Top 10 Holiday Light Shows In America", as selected by USA Today, is located right here in Idaho. Every year, the town of Coeur d'Alene holds a unique and vibrant holiday light show in the form of a boat parade across the magnificent Lake Coeur d'Alene, and you need to see it.
The light show takes place from Thanksgiving to New Years so be sure to plan a trip to this northern Idaho town before it's too late. It's during this time that the lake turns into a wonderland comprised of over 1.5 million lights. In fact, it's considered the largest on-the-water holiday light display in America.
One of the highlights of this event is their signature "Journey to the North Pole" Holiday Lake Cruise. This special cruise takes visitors to Santa's North Pole Toy Workshop where you'll also see America's Tallest Floating Christmas Tree towering above the dark waters of the lake.
This delightful cruise takes place every night at 5:30 pm, 6:30 pm, and 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased through Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises.
However, you can always observe the beauty of this display from afar. A fleet of cruise boats departs every evening throughout the holiday season so onlookers can view this magical boat parade from wherever they can get a good viewpoint of the lake.
This is a unique Coeur d'Alene tradition that just gets bigger and better with each and every year. There's something about watching the lake light up with such a dazzling display that never fails to fill you with Christmas spirit.
There's a reason this magnificent display of lights and boat parade has become world-famous. It really is something that every Idahoan should experience this holiday season! For more information about the holiday show and the special cruise, visit the Coeur d'Alene Resort website
