The Albuquerque BioPark’s River of Lights kicks off today.
Thousands of people come out each year to see the nearly 400 light sculptures at the Botanic Gardens off Central Avenue NW near the Rio Grande.
Proceeds fund the BioPark, staff and animal supplies along with conservation efforts and school outreach.
The River of Lights runs nightly from 6-9 p.m. through Jan. 5.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 3 and older. Shuttle buses run from the parking lot at the BioPark Zoo on 10th Street SW on weekends and then nightly from Dec. 20-Jan. 5.
