December 2016 - Extras: River of Lights

The River of Lights will be celebrating a new year in sparkling glamour. The annual event, which features millions of twinkling lights, live music, food, drinks and plenty of holiday spirit, attracts thousands of visitors from all over throughout its duration. Along with the creative light displays - over 500 displays and sculptures - kids have the opportunity board the Polar Bear Express* for a train ride with Santa and his elves. They will get a cup of hot chocolate and a sweet treat upon boarding and an enchanting story. Adults will also have an opportunity to ride the Express on December 15th. The experience can be upgraded with a dinner for two at The Shark Reef Café. River of Lights runs from November 26th - December 30th at the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden. You can learn more at
