Thanks to Craig Lewis of the Colorado Council of Camera Clubs for putting this list together. Here is a list of area Holiday lighting shows.

On Photographers nights the street lights in Civic Center Park will be turned off to accommodate photography of the building.

MAIN STREET LITTLETON

Main Street in Downtown Littleton is a wonder of lights that run the full length of Main Street. The lights are on every night from dark to ? I am not sure they turn them off at night. They usually run on the same schedule as the Denver City and County Building for dates.
