About LADWP Light Festival
Welcome to the 12th Annual Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Griffith Park Holiday Light Festival. This magnificent display of lights along a one-mile segment of Crystal Springs Drive has
become a holiday tradition that attracts more than a half million visitors each year.

This festival symbolizes LADWP’s proud history and shared legacy of service to the people of the city. It is also made possible through the generous support of the Los Angeles Visitors and Convention Bureau (LA Inc.), the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, the Los Angeles Zoo, the Los Angeles World Airports, Autry National Center, Automobile Club of Southern California and CalTrans.

To demonstrate our commitment to a “greener” LA, the Holiday Light Festival will be a pedestrian only event from November 21 through November 25. Visitors may park at the L.A. Zoo parking lot or the parking lots on the south side of the festival near the Merry-Go-Round. Parking will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes to walk the full one-mile route each way. It is also recommended that walkers have outerwear, as it can get chilly.
 Our traditional route of driving, walking and shuttles will run November 26 through December 30. The shuttle buses will be available weekends and December 14-30. Walkers can enjoy the walking path. Both options are accessible from the Los Angeles Zoo parking lot.

Enjoy the festival and Happy Holidays from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
We’re working for LA!
