Similar events will be held Saturday at Pancho Villa State Park and Rockhound Park. Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park in Carlsbad on Saturday will host a program called "Holidays with the Animals."

Sugarite Canyon State Park will host "Christmas on the Chicorica" beginning at 5 p.m. on Dec. 15, featuring a stroll along Chicorica Creek on a path lit by 1,500 luminarias.
