Celebrate the Holidays at Pacific Place

If you have popped into Pacific Place lately, you will have have noticed something a little different. The railings are wrapped in gorgeous garlands, the flower pots are bursting with poinsettias, and a particular jolly old man in a red suit has set up a cabin on level 2.

That’s right! We have the holidays on our minds and have truly decked the halls to prove it! We can’t get enough holiday spirit, and we have some upcoming events we can’t wait to share with all of you:


Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Seattle Snow

While Mother Nature in the Pacific Northwest seems to struggle with the concept of an actual “White Christmas,” here at Pacific Place we take snow matters into our own hands. Every evening at 6 p.m., between November 29th and December 31st, we transform our atrium into an indoor snow globe! The snow flurries aren’t complete without an adorable snowflake wand. Since it is the season of giving, the wands are available for a $2 suggested donation and 100% of the proceeds benefit Seattle Children’s! We can’t wait to catch some snowflakes!

The snowfall is made possible this year by:

Oliver! at The 5th Avenue Theatre

BMW Seattle

Idaho Tourism

A special thanks to our snowflake wand sponsors Sound Community Bank, Seattle Department of Transportation, Botanical Designs, ABM Security Services, PSR Mechanical, Seattle Building Maintenance, Schindler Elevator Corporation, Impark and SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel.


Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Santa Claus SeattleHo, ho, ho! He’s back! Thanks to our friends at Arthur & Associates Holiday Photography, Santa Claus makes his triumphant return to Pacific Place beginning on November 29th. Santa’s Cabin is all set up now on Level 2 and looks adorable! Dickensian character cutouts from the 5th Avenue Theater’s Oliver! will be sure to cheer you up while waiting in line! While waiting in line in the Oliver! waiting area, kids can also express their creativity decorating Oliver! coloring sheets.

A Tree To Light Up Your Holiday!

Christmas Tree Seattle

You may have noticed an extra special Christmas tree on Level 2, and we can’t help but brag about how amazing it looks! Ski Idaho, Providence O’Christmas Trees and Sound Community Bank have teamed up to create this gorgeous tree; and sisters Judy Burdin, Laurie Stewart and Cindy Teitzel designed the decorations to celebrate Seattle’s outdoorsy and rugged sense of style – think Eddie Bauer all the way. Be sure to swing by and check it out next time you’re out shopping!

While you’re admiring the tree be sure to enter to win a ski vacation to Schweitzer Mountain Resort, one of Idaho’s top winter vacation destinations from Idaho Tourism. As part of Idaho Tourism’s sponsorship of the Winter Wonderland, many Idaho Ski Association members are offering specials and discount packages accessible at

Eddie Bauer is also giving away a shopping spree to help outfit your family in all the right gear for your winter getaway! Swing by the Eddie Bauer store on Level 2 for details.

Happy holidays from all of us at Pacific Place!
