The rock faces and waterfalls of Falls Park along Big Sioux River are famous for its natural beauty. During the festive holiday celebration, they are enhanced by thousands of lights. Every November, the park completely transforms into a Winter Wonderland full of colorful dazzling lights and Christmas music. The festival runs through early January from 5 p.m. to midnight.
