See Awesome Illuminations Cast Upon Mountains During This Unique Holiday Festival

Celebrate the magic of Christmas high atop Williams Canyon at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park! Enjoy a quarter of a million lights during the 2nd Annual Mountain Illumination Festival on Thursday, December 26th beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Cave of the Winds’ winter wonderland of twinkling lights, pictures with Santa, the Coca-Cola Bear and warm holiday cheer is a perfect way to help celebrate Christmas this year! Check out the giant animated Christmas tree as its lights dance to some of your favorite holiday songs, climb the Wind Walker Challenge Course, enjoy treats like hot chocolate, hot Dr. Pepper and cinnamon sticks, or s’mores around the fire pit – all included in your admission!

New this year, Cave of the Winds is incredibly excited to partner with Christmas Unlimited, which serves children and families in the Pikes Peak Region. In keeping with the true spirit of the giving season and to help spread and share the magic of Christmas with families throughout the Pikes Peak region, a portion of the proceeds of pictures with Santa and the Coca-Cola bear will go to Christmas Unlimited.

Plus, don't forget to stop by the kids' ornament craft area! As a bonus, receive a free plush teddy bear or puppy with every Santa or Coca-Cola bear photo, courtesy of Christmas Unlimited, while supplies last.
