Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden Winter Light Festival

Get ready to be dazzled by 1000's lights as you wander through the beautiful and serene Japanese Garden!

If you're looking for Lethbridge Christmas Lights, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden is the place to go! Winter’s not the typical time to take a garden walk, but Nikka Yuko’s Winter Lights Festival stands tradition on its head. The garden, designed by landscape architects from Osaka, Japan, is breathtaking year-round – especially with the hour's volunteers' work on decorating with lights. Add in a hot drink from Cleo Cafe and Lethbridge’s chilly winter nights get a lot warmer, brighter – and cozier! Don't forget to check out the new Bunka Centre to warm up and learn more about Japanese culture!
