A popular attraction at The Fair set to continue into October
PUYALLUP -- A new attraction at the Washington State Fair has proven so popular it has been extended for three weeks.
Luminasia is a spectacle so bright, it not only lights up the fairgrounds, but continues to draw large crowds.
"So you'll see a 60-foot high Space Needle, made out of steel, lights, and satin fabric covering it," explains Karen LaFlame with The Fair's event center. "You'll see Orca whales, beautiful tulip fields and daffodil fields. Totem poles, and so much more that represents the state of Washington."
In this tradition that dates back for centuries, east meets west as 50,000 lights bring this artistic arrangement into the 21st century.
"It's something that's very unique to this area. You've never seen anything like it," says LaFlamme. "So it really captures your attention whether you are young or old."
Now that rains have rolled in, LaFlamme says the wetter the better.
"Its really kind of nice when it rains because you have the glistening effect."
You can experience Luminasia each weekend through Oct. 13 at the fairgrounds in Puyallup.
