The family-friendly outdoor experience will take visitors on a magical illuminated journey through six different captivating areas: 


Guests can stroll through our charming Christmas Holiday Marketplace filled with seasonal crafts, last-minute Christmas gifts, lively and entertaining musical performances, cookie decorating, and story time during a visit with Mrs. Claus.


Holiday adventurers can walk through a tunnel of dazzling lights, guarded on both sides by two gigantic nutcracker soldiers, that lead you around a beautiful lake to various destinations such as Toyland, Electric Forest, Reindeer Grove, and Santa Village.


Here, oversized Christmas presents, snowflakes, and toys are sprinkled along the trail providing excellent opportunities for Christmas card photos and Instagram fun.


Emerging from Toyland, guests enter onto a magical Christmas tree lane, a pathway of electrified Christmas trees of various shapes, designs, and sizes, all brought to life through amazing illuminations where every 15 minutes, our beautiful 35ft tall pixel Christmas tree comes to life in a show of music, lights, and white Christmas snowfall.


In the peaceful realm of Reindeer Grove, guests will have a chance to take a picture in the world’s most famous sleigh before you venture through an oversized and whimsical ornament that leads you into Santa Village, where Santa himself is waiting to greet one and all.


Here in this rustic village, guests of all ages can visit Santa Claus to share their Christmas wishes, snap a family photo, and savor tasty food and drinks while enjoying the fun, music, and whimsy of this festival setting. 

“In addition to all of the fun of the Illumination Trail, we also feature an impressive line-up of live entertainment,” says TC Knoch, managing partner of Skyline Production Group. “We have a variety of entertainment to delight everyone from toddlers to grandparents.” From the vocal melodies of Definitely Dickens Holiday Carolers to the popular musical fun of Kids Imagine Nation Holiday Dance Party (with elves) to the swing music of Walter Simonsen’s Holiday Hop and the festive tunes of Renee Rojanaro and the Holiday Spice Band, Illuminate Silverlakes will be jolly, swinging and swaying!

“Complementing our terrific entertainment is an equally impressive menu of food and beverage offerings,” says Scott Megna, executive director of operations at Silverlakes Equestrian Center and Sports Park. “From our VIP Lounge to our walk-around snacks, there will be something for every taste.” Menu items include high-end charcuterie boxes, freshly made holiday tamales and churros, handmade confections and desserts, s’mores kits, and many other offerings, including specialty holiday cocktails and warm drinks for chilly evenings.

Like his “Jungle Book” namesake, Bagheera is a sleek, black panther who will be at your side as a loyal companion. But he’s not a fierce fellow—Bagheera is a snuggle bug who’ll reach his long arms out in pleasure as you cuddle him and make silly noises in his pointed ears.

Spring St. at the entrance to El Dorado Park (no parking fee for shelter visitors). You can email to speed the process for adopting or fostering Bagheera. Ask for ID#A686896).
