Record Year for Grotto's Festival of Lights

1/3/2017 12:00 PM

2016's Festival of Lights at the Grotto was a record breaker! Total attendance was the highest count ever at 83,050 visitors - and this in spite of having to close five nights due to severe weather. The previous record was 62,931 visitors and was set in 2011 during a season of unusually warm weather.

Christmas Eve alone recorded a total of 3,792 visitors for the day - another record breaker.

A special thanks to all who worked so devotedly to make this a memorable holiday tradition in the Portland area.
