About Christmas at the Falls 2022

Celebrate the holiday season with Noccalula Falls and the City of Gadsden by visiting Christmas at the Falls. The sparkling annual event features millions of lights winding throughout the park and an array of holiday displays and decorations.

Enjoy the spectacular twinkling views from the paved walking trails or from the comfort of the park train. But that’s not all! Santa will be there taking pictures and spreading holiday cheer nightly through December 23rd. And for those whose hearts seem to be three sizes too small, the Grinch will visit the falls every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 10 p.m.

Be sure to bring cash in order to grab a snack or warm cup of hot cocoa from the food vendors on site. Some may not accept credit or debit cards.
