15 Best Festivals and Shows in Los Angeles during December 2018

LA lights up winter with fireworks, superb light displays, and some great entertainment in the form of Broadway musicals and top shows this December.


Enchanted Lights in the Garden

About: As you enter you’ll find the lighted field of tulips, then move on to the forest of sycamores where you control the rainbow colors on the tree lights. The glowing stars lead you to an art exhibit in light by HYBYCOZO, called Celestial Shadows, before you enter the fantasy forest to find an illuminated gazebo with a glowing chandelier. There are another five different experiences during the event that involve music and interactive lights. Every person entering the garden requires a ticket including kids 2 and under whose tickets are free. Tickets are timed to avoid overcrowding – once you have your timed entry ticket please enter at the correct time – you will have around an hour and a half to enjoy the sights.

When: Throughout December  (started November 18 ends January 6, 2019) from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm.
