The Winter Walk In New Mexico That Will Positively Enchant You
Just because it’s getting cold, there is no reason to stay inside, especially when this colorful holiday walk is just waiting for you. Take a winter walk through the River of Lights at the Albuquerque BioPark.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Enjoy the magic of millions of twinkling lights and more than 500 dazzling holiday displays at New Mexico's largest walk-through light show!
River of Lights was named one of "The 15 Most Spectacular Holiday Light Displays in the U.S.
Each year's show unveils ingenious new sculptures and stunning displays made by BioPark artists and craftsmen.
You can still visit the BioPark during the day when the light displays wait patiently for their time to shine.
The lights and the night give new perspective to the park's everyday exhibits, like the Ceremonial Rose Garden
Make a grand entrance by riding the Polar Bear Express. Along the way, drink hot chocolate, hear a story and meet Santa! (Tickets for the train are sold separately.)
The River of Lights runs from November 25 through Dec. 30, 2017, from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm.
Note, the park will be closed on December 24 and 25.
ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden (which hosts the River of Lights) is located at 2601 Central Avenue, NW, in Albuquerque.
