What could be more beautiful than a 1885 Victorian home dressed top to bottom in twinkly lights and tasteful holiday decor? The Victorian Belle is a spectacular holiday wonderland during the holiday light display.
On the outside, take in the dazzling lights decorating the home and the courtyard. The Victorian Belle’s garden is transformed into a magical trail of lighted trees and fun creatures. The gazebo features treats for purchase, fun displays and music.
The best part is you get the explore the home, which has every nook and cranny artfully displaying beautiful holiday decor. Going inside the Victorian Belle is like taking a step back in time. During my first visit, I marveled at the beauty of this artfully restored home, while also being blown away by the decorations on all four levels.
The 2021 Holidays at the Belle, formerly know as Miracle of a Million Lights, will feature several different activities. This post specifically covers the holiday light display.
The holiday light display at the Victorian Belle is open from December 1-10 and 12-23 from 4:30-9 p.m. and December 24 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. The attraction will be closed on Christmas Day.
New this year, Santa and kids’ crafts will be at the Victorian Belle December 5, 12, and 19. Carolers will also be visiting on December 4, 10, 12, 17 and 18 during select times.
This is a must-see holiday light display that I highly encourage you to plan into your busy holiday schedule. It is one of my favorites. To beat the weekend crowds, I usually plan an after work visit during the week. It is much quieter and allows you to really take your time exploring this historic Portland gem.
