Garden Lights, holiday nights – 12/14

Join us for a lightacular beATL-time event on Sunday December 14that 5 pm.  As the end-of-the-year festivities are around the corner, there is no better start than a twinkling stroll in the botanical gardens glowing to impress with more than 1 million energy-efficient LED little lights.  The Great Lawn is transformed for the occasion into “Orchestral Orbs” – a one-of-a-kind topiary light show choreographed to holiday music.  Bring your kids along… they will be thrilled to meet Lumina, a magical live character!

Not only will you be enchanted by those sparkling attractions in the middle of the city but this is the perfect opportunity to meet new faces.

Our self-guided tour will end up at the Glow Bar … sip a “Rudolf”, its signature cocktail, or enjoy a hot cider with your new friends.
