Bloedel Reserve returns Holiday Village display

Discover, or rediscover, the magic of Holiday Village at Bloedel Reserve, an imaginative tiny town that brings home big memories, on display at the residence house from Saturday, Dec. 9 through Sunday, Dec. 31.

Created by the giant imagination of longtime Bloedel volunteer Dwight Shappell, the intricately designed, hand-made, pint-size palaces, tree houses and cabins yearly ‘Wow!” the young and young-at heart alike.

Model trains chug around the village, fragrant cider simmers, and the residence is decked to the nines, a holiday tradition for all ages.

Viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday (closed on Christmas Day).

The cost is included with general admission: $17 for adults, $12 for seniors and military, $10 for students 13 through 18, $6 for children 5 through 12 and free for those 4 and younger.

Bloedel Reserve is located at 7471 NE Dolphin Drive. Visit to learn more.
