Wildlights at the Living Desert


The Annual WildLights Holiday Festival celebrates nearly 23 years of holiday magic at The Living Desert’s WildLights Festival.

This year’s event includes thousands of twinkling lights, dazzling displays, live music, festive games and activities, plus the new Holiday Express trackless train ride.

The colorful train is designed after a traditional 19th century steam engine, and is free with admission and transports guests through the festival, complete with a sturdy red engine, carts, coal tender and caboose.


There are camel and carousel rides, Prancer’s Playland, Santa’s Corner, and Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen with hot chocolate, s’mores, and holiday-themed Wildlife Wonder Shows.

This year’s event includes the popular Tunnel of Lights, where guests can stroll under a canopy of glittering lights, blinking and flashing to holiday music.

The more than 3,300 ft of model train track will be thoughtfully decorated and is a site not-to-be-missed. Visitors have the opportunity to take a picture and visit with Santa Claus, and enjoy holiday-themed entertainment.  Make it your new family tradition at The Living Desert’s, WildLights.

Event Date: November 23 – November 26, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
