Winter Lights Image

Winter Lights

In 1947, a tradition began at Seven Falls to promote the canyon at night when alternating colored and white lights illuminated the waters, much to the delight of locals and visitors worldwide.  On Saturday, November 17, the much-loved, multi-colored display continues for another holiday season as Seven Falls celebrates the fourth annual Winter Lights event.  A portion of the ticket proceeds support The El Pomar Empty Stocking Fund and Springs Rescue Mission.

More than 100,000 individual lights will line the path leading to the Falls, and this year, colored lights will also adorn the cliff faces of the Pillars of Hercules, making for not only  a festive atmosphere, but a photographer’s dream locale for holiday family photos. The lights will remain illuminated through February 24th.
