Where To See Christmas Lights In Ruidoso

As winter kicks off in Ruidoso, the village fills with light. One of the many holiday activities—not to mention free things to do this winter in Ruidoso— happens after dark: from the much beloved annual Festival of Lights Parade and After Party and the holiday displays in Midtown to the festive glow at Schoolhouse and Wingfield parks. 


Take a drive through the twinkling Upper Canyon right before your dinner reservation, after you've seen a show at Spencer Theaterwhile having a warm late-night drink, or after you've perused the Ruidoso galleries and shops. Meanwhile, just outside of town, the towering lobby Christmas tree at the Inn Of The Mountain Gods Resort & Casino is a annual selfie-favorite.
