Snow may not fall in Los Angeles, but that does not mean that the winters in this city are less fun than where it does snow.

So in the absence of sleds and wars with snowballs, in the city there is an option to stroll through exquisitely lit sites with Christmas lights. The experiences are as varied as spectacular, and these are some of the most relevant.

Grand Park Winter Glow

This is the second year that the recently renovated Music Center Plaza – adjacent to the Grand Park – performs the Winter Glow, a display of lights that offers an immersive experience in which visitors can wander through interactive facilities. The trails and fountains of this location are the framework of works with lights of several local artists, who used lights and projectors to transform spaces of the Music Center and the Grand Park. It ends on December 25. Free. Reports

Holiday Light Festival Train Ride in Griffith Park

This light show is a favorite of Los Angeles families. Not only does it happen in the most important natural park in the city, but its price has remained accessible for years. The ride on this miniature train costs $ 5 per person. When it gets dark, the Griffith Park Railroad becomes a route with bridges, roads and small ravines crammed with thousands and thousands of lights. And for two more dollars, children can enter the village of Santa, where this character awaits them to listen to their wishes for Christmas. Until December 30, from 5 to 9 pm. Closed on 24 and 25. reports.

LA Zoo Lights at the Los Angles Zoo

This is the sixth year that the Los Angeles Zoo performs the LA Zoo Lights, with the only difference that each year strives to offer an experience that integrates not only the Christmas spirit, but the love for animal life. That is why visitors will be able to see illuminated wild beast structures all along the route of this exhibition. It includes a magical forest adorned with balls with discoteque mirrors, more animals with lights than in previous years and a long and winding tunnel with thousands and thousands of multicolored lights. It ends on January 5. 6 to 10 pm. Closed on 24 and 25. Tickets $ 11.95 to $ 14.95. reports.
