Although it is nearly winter, the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula gets a little warm and bright this time every year. Both locals and travelers alike say it is one of the best times of year to experience the Olympic Peninsula. As you make the last corner into Blyn, just 7 miles East of Sequim, travelers are welcomed by one of the most impressive holiday light displays, this side of Seattle.
Over 2.5 million LED lights adorn the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal properties again this year. Displays are at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Government campus, the Longhouse Market and Deli, the Blyn Firehouse, Cedar Greens, 7 Cedars Hotel and Casino, Jamestown Family Health Center, and The Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course. The lights come on before dusk and turn off just after sunrise.
For the 15th year, P. Walker Inc. of Gig Harbor has installed lights for the Tribe, this year spending nearly 7,500 hours in November. The crew will spend slightly less time than that in January and February unwrapping them from the trees and carefully winding them up for storage until next year.
“7 Cedars is very proud to contribute to the holiday spirit found around the Peninsula,” said Jerry Allen, CEO of 7 Cedars Resort. “Our 7 Cedars Family, including the Longhouse Market and Cedars at Dungeness, continue to enjoy the many compliments sent our way. The holiday lights have become a nice way to say Thank You, and Happy Holidays to All!”
