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 Miracle of a Million Lights.
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. Inside a separate tent, holiday movies are playing on loop.
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 2019 Miracle of a Million Lights will be open December 8-27 from 6 to 10 p.m. The attraction will be closed on Christmas Eve and Day.
This is a must-see holiday light display that I highly encourage you to plan into your busy holiday schedule. It is my favorite. 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.
The online ticket price for the Miracle of a Million Lights display is $8 for adults (+$2.12 processing fee) and $5 for kids (+$1.94 processing fee). There is not an age limit for the kid’s ticket listed yet. The ticket price at the door is $10 for adults and $8 for kids. With the online ticket processing fees, the price is almost the same so choose whatever option you like best.
On December 28, the venue is hosting a special adults-only night called Krampus 2019. From 6-9 p.m., the event will feature food and beer. Show up in your best Krampus costume and you’ll be entered to win a special prize. Tickets are $15 (+$2.55 processing fee).
The Victorian Belle is located at 1441 N McClellan St. in North Portland. For more information, visit the event web page.
