Lights at Springs Preserve

Illuminate your world at the third annual Winter Lights Festival, where centuries-old seasonal traditions meet modern-day innovation.
Set amidst the latest in green building technology and native desert gardens — adorned by a half-million eco-friendly LED lights — this winter celebration will delight the young-at-heart of all ages. Scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. Dec. 11–13 and Dec. 18–24, the festival captivates visitors with a blend of multicultural traditions, live performances of seasonal music and dance, holiday delicacies and visits with Santa.
Don’t forget your warm, woolen mittens on chilly evenings at the 2009 Winter Lights Festival, and be sure to visit the Springs Cafe by Wolfgang Puck, where sweet treats and warm beverages will help keep the chill at bay. Pay a visit to the gift shop and peruse “green” treasures that are perfect gifts for everyone on your list.
Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children 5-12, and free for ages 4 and under.
Give back to the community this holiday season by joining the Springs Preserve, and other local public and private organizations, in recycling your live cut Christmas tree. Each year, approximately 250,000 trees are dumped in the landfill — producing 2,500 tons of organic waste. With the help of valley residents, the Southern Nevada Christmas Tree Recycling Committee has recycled more than 65,000 trees since 2001.
Recycling Christmas trees reduces landfill waste, and the process creates nutrient-rich mulch for use in landscapes and parks throughout Las Vegas. Show your support and recycle your tree between Dec. 26-Jan. 15 at one of 22 convenient drop sites. For more information, visit or call (702) 822-7700.
