               Luminaria Group2011 marks the 20th anniversary of the Yakima Area Arboretum's annual Luminaria candle-lit walk, arguably the grandest Luminaria walk in the Pacific Northwest.  Over a 1000 candles line a mile long pathway through the wintry landscape of the Yakima Area Arboretum.  Walkers will listen to the music of the Arboretum’s Carillon Bell Tour as they venture past the tallest lighted Christmas Tree in Central Washington, stroll through the twinkling lights of the Japanese Garden, then onto the Jewett Interpretive Center where they will enjoy steaming cups of Starbuck's coffee, hot cocoa or hot apple cider and tasty treats from Tree Top, live music performed each hour by various local artists, fun children's crafts, and shopping in the Tree House Gift Shop.

               Luminaria Music Hundreds of families return year after year making the annual Luminaria walk a magical and affordable holiday tradition.  After 20 years, Luminaria continues to draw over a over thousand visitors each night, and new features are added each year to keep it fresh and interesting.   Children and their parents can’t help but be enchanted by this special event. The trail is relatively flat and designed to be used without a flashlight.  Ample parking.
