Ice-skate and Check Out Holiday Lights Around Los Angeles

December 03, 2018

We may not have snow in southern California, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fully immerse ourselves in the holiday season! With new, exciting events happening every night, there’s no shortage of merry celebrations to enjoy the season Los Angeles-style. Here are a few of our favorites:

Pershing Square Holiday Skating Rink | Now Through January 21
The outdoor ice skating rink, one of the biggest in the city, is the perfect backdrop for holiday festivities. Throughout the winter months, keep an eye out for special events including curling lessons and a silent disco skate night.

Descanso Gardens’ Lights | Now Through January 6
Catch one of the most stunning light displays in the area at the Descanso Gardens. This year’s light-up experience is a whimsical, innovative take on holiday lights that combines interactive experiences with eight different illuminated installations across the grounds of the garden.

LA Zoo Holiday Lights | Now Through January
Don’t think the zoo is just for daytime! During the holiday season, the zoo lights up at night with colorful displays across the grounds. Guests will also be able to see reindeer and grab their photo with Santa while enjoying the magically illuminated park.
