Christmas Lights Brighten Kennewick’s Historic Waterfront
86.5-foot Christmas Tree Honors Veterans
Kennewick, Wash. – Port of Kennewick has added holiday sparkle to Kennewick’s Historic Waterfront District. The Port placed thousands of twinkling lights in the trees along Clover Island Drive in east Kennewick. The Clover Island Lighthouse was also adorned with lights, making that unique icon sparkle with holiday cheer as a greeting to those who visit Clover Island and Kennewick’s downtown.
In addition, the port strung red, white and blue lights up to the very top of an 86.5-foot-tall pine tree adjacent to Clover Island within the port’s Willows development site. That tree is visible from Clover Island Drive and Washington Street, and it has been lit by the Port of Kennewick for the past 15 years. Every year, the port creates the Veterans’ Christmas Tree—decorating what is one of the tallest living Christmas trees in the region with red, white and blue lights—to honor the dedication and sacrifice of those United States men and women who have served their country in military service.
The Veterans’ Christmas Tree and Clover Island holiday lights will remain in place for community viewing through New Year’s Day.
Port of Kennewick is an economic development entity focused on developing assets to create sustainable family-wage jobs,
build infrastructure and user-friendly transportation systems, and enhance the quality of life within the port district.
