Keener’s Christmas lights display is a personal labor of love by Jeff & Candice Keener.

The Keener family has been providing holiday fun and amusement since Jeff was a young boy growing-up in Bothell and his parents hosted elaborate light displays for passerbyers.  Now, for the last two decades, Jeff & Candice start putting-up lights on October 1st and work tirelessly to get the lights up, and displays staged, for lighting the day after Thanksgiving.

Over the years, the Christmas lights display has grown from a few displays and a hundred thousand lights to the now 500,000 plus lights and hundreds of displays.


Keener’s Christmas Lights is annually featured on KOMO Television’s “Parade of Lights”–recognizing the BEST CHRISTMAS LIGHTS DISPLAYS in the Northwest (video)


Visitors will tell you it’s the BEST CHRISTMAS LIGHTS DISPLAY because of the circular driveway that allows families and visitors to drive THROUGH the display and be SURROUNDED by lights–truly a magical experience that has families and friends driving through multiple times and on many return trips for more as there’s more to see each time through!

The display is free to enjoy. The Keeners do not accept any payment personally and any kind donations by visitors go to Childrens’ Orthopedic Ben Towne Foundation for childhood cancer research. Jeff is friends with the Towne family and is empathetic for the family’s loss of their young son, after losing his own parents to cancer. In fact, Jeff matches all donations provided and has been able to provide thousands of dollars each year to the Foundation.

In addition, there is a collection box for canned food and dried goods. Last year, over a thousand pounds of food was collected and donated to HopeLink.

If you’re lucky and it’s cold or snowy, you’ll find Santa Claus handing out candy canes to the car loads of visitors along with a cheerful “Ho Ho Ho”!

Truly a magical experience visitors of all ages are in awe with the sights and sounds of Keeners Christmas Lights Display.
