Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas through life-sized scenes of events surrounding the birth of Christ. The gardens are decorated with beautiful lights. Short musical performances occur every night at 7pm until Christmas.
The light display here is simply dazzling. The 3D lights of wiseman coming from afar are my favorite. My daughter (10) loves the glowing flowers throughout the gardens. Every tree is wound with lights of various shapes, colors, and sizes. The effect is almost surreal.
In addition to the lights, there are life-size displays depicting scenes from the Christmas story including the stable with Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus and another with shepherds in the field. I think there is audio narration on a few but I can't remember for sure. Inside the visitors center there are nativities displayed from around the world, a huge statue of Christ, as well as interactive exhibits about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the temple.
This event can get pretty crowded and parking can be a pain. We usually go right after Christmas to avoid the busyness.
