Rio Medellin Once Again Shines for Annual Xmas Lights Spectacular

Medellin utilities giant EPM on November 29 relights 27 million LED bulbs for an annual Christmas-season spectacle in several city parks and neighborhoods, as well as light-show designs alongside Rio Medellin — absent in recent years due to “Parques del Rio” construction.

The spectacle can be viewed daily from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. midnight, November 29 to January 6, 2020, according to EPM.  Galleries of photos showing light-show designs from multiple sites are available here: http://fotosgrupoepm.com/thumbnails.php?album=2302  and here: http://fotosgrupoepm.com/thumbnails.php?album=2281 .

Various light shows are installed in Parque Norte, Parques del Río, Avenida La Playa, Carrera 53, the Ayacucho Tram, the Bolívar Promenade, Carrera 70, Las Palmas avenue and more than a dozen outlying neighborhoods and towns.

Towns in Antioquia with EPM-organized light shows include Caracolí, Santo Domingo, Carolina del Príncipe, Dabeiba, Cocorná, Concordia, El Carmen de Atrato (Chocó), Girardota, Ituango, Tarazá, Caucasia, Cáceres, Nechí and Valdivia, according to EPM.
