Few outdoor winter events in Los Angeles are as popular as the annual Griffin Park Holiday Lights Festival, which is to close at the end of the month after a fantastic run.
On December 30th the spectacular display along a stretch of Crystal Springs Drive will come to a close and there is sure to be a surge in popularity of this long-running and much-loved attraction among locals and those on Los Angeles tours alike.
At around a mile in length the festival is impressive in terms of its scale as well as it aesthetics and this year’s display could go down as one of the best ever. Highlights include illuminated renderings of the Statue of Liberty, the Hollywood sign and an incredible Tunnel of Lights.
In addition to the lights, the festival also incorporates a Reindeer Romp at the nearby LA Zoo and the Spark of Love Toy Drive, which aims to gather donations for underprivileged children at this special time of year.
The festival has been running for the last 13 years, attracts some half a million visitors each year and is organised by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
