Record Year for Grotto's Festival of Lights
1/3/2017 12:00 PM
2016's Festival of Lights at the Grotto was a record breaker!
Total attendance was the highest count ever at 83,050 visitors - and this in
spite of having to close five nights due to severe weather. The previous record
was 62,931 visitors and was set in 2011 during a season of unusually warm
Christmas Eve alone recorded a total of 3,792 visitors for the
day - another record breaker.
A special thanks to all who worked so devotedly to make this a
memorable holiday tradition in the Portland area.
