Where To See Holiday Lights In Denver

Blossoms of Light , one million lights illuminating the Denver Botanic Gardens during the holiday season, Denver, Colorado USAThe holidays are in full swing and what better way to get into the spirit than checking out seasonal light displays? 

Take a break from the hustle and bustle by visiting these fantastic illumination destinations. And remember to dress accordingly!

  • Jellystone Park Larkspur Every night through January 3, 2015, you can enjoy the park’s display of more than 250,000 lights, as well as a 100-foot long tunnel with lights that are synchronized to your car radio. (How cool is that?) And if you visit on the Friday and Saturday nights before Christmas, you have the option of seeing them during a brisk hayride.
  • Denver Botanic Gardens Colorful lights are draped in elegant designs and highlight the garden’s winter beauty at the Blossoms of Light display, which is open nightly through January 1, 2015. Bonus: warm drinks and tasty treats are available and seasonal entertainment is provided on select evenings. 
  • Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Spread throughout the gardens, Trail of Lights offers visitors a choice of paths: a shorter route that leads directly to the childrens play area and a longer one that lets you explore the Green Barn Farm and silo before continuing on to the children’s area and 1880s homestead. If you get chilled, head to the warming hut and fire pit! Hot drinks are also available for purchase. This display is also on view nightly through January 1, 2015.
  • The Severson Residence This house near our Cottonwood Creek community is a staff favorite. With laser lights, garage door covers, a Merry Christmas light banner, and the Grinch stealing Christmas in an upstairs window, we think it’ll become one of your faves too. The Park Hill, Cheesman Park and Capitol Hill neighborhoods also have festive residential displays.
