The DWP Festival of Lights, sponsored by the LA Department of Water and Power, has been an annual tradition in Griffith Park for decades, but has been cancelled for the last three years, every year with a promise of returning next year. The light display generally runs from before Thanksgiving through the night before New Years Eve with some dates designated for bikes or pedestrians only. Dress warmly if you are planning to visit on foot.
Dates: There will be NO Holiday Light Festival for 2012, but you can click through the next pages for a virtual tour.
