The Grottos holiday lights are shining as bright as ever


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - A special holiday trip is planned for members of the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center to The Grotto Dec. 12. Reserve a seat on the bus now by calling the center.

Join the folks at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center for a trip to the Festival of Lights at The Grotto.

Let us do the driving; you enjoy the lights, choral music and gift shop. The Grotto’s Christmas Festival of Lights is a huge Christmas choral festival.

The festival features nearly 160 indoor holiday concerts performed by many of the region’s finest school, church and civic choirs. Offering a family-oriented blend of traditional celebration and serene reflection, the festival theme “Angels on High” reflects the special season of hope that Christmas offers to many thousands of families from around the Pacific Northwest.

The trip is planned for 4 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 12. Cost is $20 for LOACC members, all others $29.

Call the center at 503-635-3758 to reserve a space on the bus, sign up for classes and make lunch reservations.
