This amazing, music coordinated display (shown here from last year) will kick off the holiday season Nov. 30 at 7pm at 3908 SW Charlestown Street.

REMINDER: Helmstetler's West Seattle Lights will shine Nov. 30

West Seattle Food Bank and NW Parkinson’s Foundation to benefit from lighting ceremony

On Saturday, November 30th, West Seattle Lights will have their 5th Annual Lighting Ceremony at the home of Corey and Taylor Helmstetler at 3908 SW Charlestown. The public is invited free of charge, but attendees are asked to bring a food or cash donation for either West Seattle Food Bank or The Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation.

This year the Helmstetler Christmas Spectacular will have a NEW Master Of Ceremonies…a talking and singing 8 Foot Tall Snowman!!! Along with his two talking/singing Christmas Trees, Jaeley and Jaxton! Here's the Herald story from last year with a preview video.

Earlier in the year a Name The Snowman Contest was conducted and the winner and the Snowmans’ new name will be announced.

Last year West Seattle Lights collected nearly 1100 lbs of food for the West Seattle Food Bank and over $2500 for both the Food Bank and NW Parkinson’s Foundation.

Jim Winder, the creator and brains behind West Seattle Lights said, “I’m looking forward to having our new Master Of Ceremonies. We will also have a few other new features in our display that I am sure will delight the kid in all of us. Am also looking forward to another banner year of giving by our giving friends and neighbors of West Seattle and surrounding communities that will benefit our charities and bring smiles to all those who attend”.

The Lighting Ceremony begins at 7pm on Saturday, November 30th at 3908 SW Charlestown in West Seattle.

Please be advised that SW Charlestown Street will be closed between 39th and 40th Ave SW from 6:30pm until 8:00pm during the Ceremony.
