There will be a glittering 58-foot Christmas tree and skating events as always, plus new light installations inspired by cultural festivals. Explore tunnels of light, discover glowing ice sculptures in an enchanted forest and enjoy a luminous garden lantern display.

On Opening Day (Saturday, November 27, 3:00-11 :00pm), there will be performances and activities, both on land and on ice!

Note: This year’s Cavalcade of Lights will not include a fireworks display. Skating and ice sculptures are weather-dependent.
