Crescent Holiday Window Displays Resurrected at The Davenport Grand Hotel

Downtown Spokane Partnership and Davenport Hotels have teamed up to bring back the magic of the Crescent holiday window displays. They'll be unveiled at a celebration this Friday, November 30 at 5:30pm at The Davenport Grand Hotel. Historically, the Crescent store's elegant and creative displays brought hundreds of people to downtown Spokane every holiday season. Those displays have been stored in the basement of the old Crescent store at 707 W Main Ave for decades. Thanks to the hard work by Downtown Spokane Partnership, a team of volunteers and Davenport Hotels, a handful of the old displays have been cleaned up.

Winter Glow spends over 6 months each year getting the displays ready for the park. KXLY's Mark Peterson and the Extreme Team are once again lending a hand for this year's holiday display!

Winter Glow began in the winter of 2014 with the mission of bringing the holiday spirit strongly back to the Spokane area with all types of holiday light displays. For more information, find Spokane Winter Glow Spectacular on Facebook.
