Riparian After Dark


The Riparian Preserve comes alive with a holiday glow!  Stroll around the candle-lit trail at Water Ranch lake with hundreds of luminaries as well as numerous festive light displays at every turn. This is a rare opportunity for those who appreciate nature to experience the thrill of  nighttime at the preserve.

In addition to the lighted trail, we will feature a variety of school choirs, carolers and other live holiday entertainment.  There  will be light refreshments available for purchase.

Each night of the event, the Town of Gilbert will be partnering with a non-profit organization to help collect items to help support their organization
