Walk through the dazzling light tunnel

Enter Sherman Gardens on the red carpet and stroll through the glistening light tunnel, on your way to Moulin Rouge, a Parisian dance hall in the Tea Garden featuring can-can dancers and French cabaret singers. Take photos by a classic 1938 Packard 120 Convertible Sedan, compliments of Packards International Motor Car Club. Experience the historic Hollywood Hills recreated with images from the Sherman Library archives. Venture through the Sherman Shop of Horrors and encounter Trouble in Paradise in the Tropical Conservatory.

A must-see is a visit to Santa in his Miracle on PCH workshop. Then head to the fire pit to whip up your own batch of s’mores. The Garden Shop will be open and filled with unique holiday gifts.

Don’t forget to make a wish at The Wishing Tree to create lasting memories with friends and family.

Nights of 1000 Lights takes place December 9-11 and 15-22 each night from 6-9 p.m.
