    Default Parque de las luces

    Don't know how long this will go on, but if you have a chance stop by the park at Bolivar and Alma Mater.
    Nearly every tree is lit with different colored lights. Perfect place for families or really anyone.

    Free to enter and there are food and beverage stands. All the usual Christmas themes are presented ( the manger, snow men, nutcracker etc)

    This is one of those things that I like about living in a city.

    To each his own...I went there on a Saturday evening and will never go back. Too many people, too many lights decorated without criteria and too many commercials.

    Thanks for posting photos and telling us about the park. In this day and age, with everyone having cameras in their phones, it seems odd that hardly anyone posts photos about the nice happenings in the DR.

    It doesn't always have to be about crime scenes or murders, for cryin' out loud.

    Thanks RG84, If anyone knows how much longer the display will be up please post the date.

    If in the area you can also take a ride to Agora Mall as they also have some beautiful Christmas decorations. Nothing like the pics posted above but still nice to see.

    It's going to be open at least until the second week of january 2014, so there's plenty of time for those who want to visit. Not a whole lot of parking places, so either get there early or take a cab. I haven't actually visited the park, but I drive by it every day and from the street it looks great, specially at night.

    Ha HA Ha you sound like Scrooge, bah humbug. Yes I agree too many commercials, but somebody has to pay for the displays and it really doesn't take away from the look. Unless we only want to see the negative side.

    I knew it was going to be crowded so I went on a week night and it was still packed but once again not enough to make it unpleasent.

    One of the things I really like about DR is how they decorate for Christmas almost everywhere.

    When I first heard about this I didn't think much of the idea. Conjured images of the Vegas strip and I like to see snow with my Christmas decorations. Wife finally talked me into going last week (mid week) and lo and behold ...I LIKED IT! Kids loved it, very family oriented, and even decent pizza available. Actually put me in a holiday spirit.
