Denver's Best Christmas Light Displays.

Posted on Tuesday, December 7th, 2010 at 3:11pm.


Where can I find Denver's best Christmas light displays this year?  Nothing can get you in the Holiday Spirit better than Christmas lights.  In Denver we are very lucky to have some terrific privately decorated homes in every neighborhood of Denver and also some fabulous private light displays around town to bring out the child in you.

The Civic Center light display is always a great place to start any tour.  Young and old will love Zoo Lights at the Denver Public Zoo and Living Lights at the Butterfly Pavilion.  Botanic Gardens offer two displays, Blossoms of Lights on York and Trail of Lights at Chatfield and Hudson Gardens offers Hudson Holiday, voted best display last year by Westword.  And to see private home owners trying to pull off their best Clark Griswold, then the Highlands Ranch Lighting contest is a must see.  If you know of any other great neighborhoods and homes that are must sees, let us know!

There isn't a website or direct link for the Civic Center Light Display, but I did find out that the building will be lit every night from Friday, December 3rd and will remain on until the end of the Stock Show in late January. Note: Photographers nights will occur every Sunday through December. The lights will be on from 5:45 to 10:45 each night. On Photographers nights the street lights in Civic Center park will be turned off to accommodate photography of the building. Luckily this gives us plenty of time to enjoy the lights even though Christmas has passed.
