If your neighbors decided to put up Christmas lights earlier than ever before, or leave them up longer, nobody better be giving them any crap about it. We’re looking for joy where we can find it, and for a lot of people, that means the beautiful lights of the holiday season. So much the better if you can find a glorious display of those lights in an outdoor setting.
This year, Luminaria: Experience the Light returns to Thanksgiving Point’s Ashton Gardens (3900 Garden Dr., Lehi, thanksgivingpoint.org) for the fifth year, with a spectacular array of nearly 3 million lights set to 25 “beats” along a pathway of more than a mile. Individual areas include the Merry Mosaic of 6,500 programmable luminaries, Himalayan Heights, and a Light of the World garden representing events in the life of Jesus Christ. At the Luminaria Village, visitors can find food options, interactive games, fire pits and a warming tent. “This year has been tough on us all,” says Thanksgiving Point signature experiences director Austin Brown via press release. “We are excited to show some new features, new songs, new foods, and more. Our crew has outdone themselves and we are excited to show everyone.”
The magic of Luminaria has even attracted the attention of ABC’s holiday series The Great Christmas Light Fight, premiering Dec. 9. If you want to experience the spectacle in person, visit thanksgivingpoint.org/luminaria for a variety of ticketing options (including VIP, fire pit reservations and more) and COVID safety procedures, and plan to dress warmly.
