About Blumination Dream Trail:

The Blumination Dream Trail It’s a free one-kilometer winter stroll through the heights of innovation to the edge of your imagination. Follow the trail along beautiful, tree-lined pedestrian streets and pathways through the Village and around the Mill pond to discover magical, mega-watt light displays. From the “Ice Garden” to the “Enchanted Forest” and through the “Mind Warp”, to name a few, it’s an exciting and interactive adventure sure to spark the imagination of the whole family. The journey ends in the Events Plaza where the illuminated “Dream Tree” is the focus of an amazing visual and musical display every hour on the hour. And, new this year, each creative installation will “dance to the music” - also on the hour from dusk to 10 pm – making it a truly multi-sensory experience. All of this plus fireworks at 8:15 Saturday nights in December!
