LADWP Holiday Light Festival is magical

Last night, Ian, CC and I took a drive through Griffith Park to check out the 14th annual LADWP Holiday Light Festival, and, man, was it worth the wait.

Yes, wait. Close to an hour, to be perfectly honest. But, like I said, the mile-long road of displays coupled with the Christmas music playing over loud speakers made the holiday that much more special.

CC thrilled to the tunnel of lights that leads cars and pedestrians into the wonderland of holiday light scenes. From glowing replicas of Griffith Observatory (above) to the Hollywood Sign to the Statue of Liberty, the scenes are eye-catching and fun.

Next year, we might bring thermoses of hot chocolate, leave the car in the parking lot and gaze at the displays on foot. However, sitting in the car with the window down and listening to CC ooh and ahh from the backseat still made for a magical evening.

Must be beautiful watching all the lights. C'mas is not a big occassion here and hardly any houses get lighted up. We have C'mas trees but when the New Year comes, we have fire works.

Fireworks sound great! The Christmas lights were really nice. CC really enjoyed them. Merry Christmas!
