Enchanted Descanso Gardens

Experience the magic of the season under the starry skies! Returning for a fourth year, Enchanted: Forest of Lights is back with even more lights and displays mingled within majestic redwoods and oak trees, some of which are between 300 and 500 years old. If you didn't have a chance to experience Enchanted last year, tickets will sell out fast! We were dazzled by the displays and interactive exhibits at the Descanso Gardens in La Canada and hope you and your family have a chance to experience it yourselves this season. The pictures just don't do it justice!

So what exactly is Enchanted? It’s an interactive display of lights, sounds and illuminated art set in the beautiful outdoors that you experience at the different stations you explore at your own pace! Music and light are triggered by your actions on many of the areas and is highly encouraged! This self guided walk thru tour is one that I know will become a family tradition for all who visit. Perfect for all ages It's a spectacle you have to experience to really get a grasp on. The grounds are stunning and we highly recommend this experience.
