Riparian After Dark

The Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch comes alive with a holiday glow on three consecutive weekends in December. Get a rare glimpse of the Riparian after dark, with hundreds of luminaries and numerous festive light displays lighting your way along the trail. Enjoy school choirs, carolers and other holiday entertainment. Light refreshments are available for purchase.

Each night of the event, the Town of Gilbert partners with a local non-profit to help collect items to support their cause. Past participants include: House of Refuge, Lions Club, United Food Bank, Maricopa County Animal Shelters, Gilbert Police and Fire Toy Drive. (Non-profits for 2018 TBD)
