An Evening of Lights at Charleston Falls Preserve has been a tradition for over 20 years.

This fun event is where families and friends gather to kick-off the Holiday Season. Take a stroll down the luminary trail to the 37′ waterfall, illuminated to enhance its natural beauty. Continue on the trail to the Goldenrod Hexagon where Santa and his helpers visit with children. Special appearance by a few of Santa’s furry friends may be on-hand. Don’t forget to make a brief stop for cookies and hot chocolate before you make your way to the falls. Bring a canned good to support the local food shelters. They will be collected near the cookie tent at the head of the main trail for local shelters.
