Riparian After Dark


RAD Logo  

Presented byDignity 2015 

The Riparian Preserve presented by Dignity Health comes alive with a holiday glow!  Stroll around the candle-lit trail at Water Ranch lake with hundreds of luminaries as well as numerous festive light displays at every turn. This is a rare opportunity for those who appreciate nature to experience the thrill of  nighttime at the preserve.

In addition to the lighted trail, we will feature a variety of school choirs, carolers and other live holiday entertainment.  There  will be light refreshments available for purchase.
