Holiday Lights at Shore Acres
Through January 1 2018
Shore Acres State Park is the brightest spot on the Oregon Coast with its illuminated displays of colorful pelicans and puffins, dancing frogs and a life-sized spouting whale. The park shines with over 325,000 lights from Thanksgiving until New Year's Eve.
