What to know
Come to Historic Downtown Hot Springs and travel along the award winning Central Avenue to view millions of lights that fill up the night with holiday cheer! You'll have plenty of photo opportunities along the way from a 30 ft. musical Christmas tree, giant Christmas ornament, and lighted fountains to the fully decked out Kenneth Adair Memorial Park where all the displays are programmed with music that you can hear even from your car on FM 87.9. This event is FREE to the public and a wonderful chance to visit the many shops downtown and do a little holiday shopping. Don't miss the giant Gingerbread House at the historic Arlington Hotel or the National Park's decorated Arlington Lawn. Due to the ongoing pandemic, City of Hot Springs staff and members of the Downtown Merchants Association will be flipping the switch to turn on the displays virtually in 2020 on Monday, November 23 at 6:00 P.M. and the displays will be on every night through the rest of the year.
