Hawk House display back this holiday season

It's not Christmas in Kirkland without a special tradition. Homeowners in one neighborhood fully deck out their home in festive Seahawks and sports decorations.

The Hawk House is back this holiday season. 

The Kirkland home known for its elaborate and popular Christmas light display featuring the Seahawks logo went dark last year after complaints from neighbors. 

“It just kind of exploded, kind of outgrew the neighborhood,” Anthony Mish, who had decorated for five years in a row, said in 2016. 

The thousands who flocked to see the outdoor and indoor festivities caused problems for some of the neighbors. Mish said there were issues with traffic and parking.

“You got people trying to come home and it's got to be frustrating trying to get to their house.”

This year, Mish worked with the city to create a plan for the display that would diminish impact to his neighbors. 

The city gave him a permit for his light display for Nov. 23 – Jan. 1. 

“We are working with the resident who creates the display to balance neighborhood impact and the public’s love for a holiday exhibition surrounding our local sports teams,” Lynn Zwaagstra, director of Kirkland Parks and Community Services, said in a release Tuesday. 

If you’re interested in checking out this year’s display, the schedule is listed below:
