The Light Show:
Recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest as the largest holiday light show west of the Mississippi, the twentieth annual Jubitz Winter Wonderland is a sensational display of lights and animation spanning the track at Portland International Raceway. Enjoy the largest drive-through light show in the Northwest right from the comfort of your own bike. Traditional favorites include Twelve Days of Christmas, Santa jumping down an 84-foot ski slope, reindeer flying over your helmet and the vivid color of the giant poinsettia arch.
Bring: $6 admission (exact change), a helmet and lights for your bike.
Lighting Tip: If you don’t have a bike light you can buy a powerful (200 lumens) bike light from Costco for about $5. These are small flashlights that come in a three-pack. They have a flash mode for traffic awareness. They can be attached to your helmet or handlebar stem with zip ties.
