The Atlanta Botanical Garden sets winter evenings a-sparkle every night starting November 19 with Garden Lights, Holiday Nights. One-million LED lights array themselves in nature-inspired sculptures and bulb-bedecked topiaries that change color to holiday music. Two or four guests bundle up to sip hot drinks and skip through hundreds of poinsettias and seasonal plant displays as carolers sing through detached doorframes. The light show gives each strolling visitor an eyeful of light-wrapped trees and 30-foot conical topiaries, as well as glowing butterflies and star-filled woodlands. The show uses LED lights as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional, gasoline-filled bulbs and employs sustainable practices to dazzle with the smallest carbon footprint possible.
Atlanta Botanical Garden
Hundreds of exotic and native plants spread across more than 30 acres of growing space at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Under the careful watch of the garden's horticulture team, these species provide a serene backdrop for garden visitors even as they educate them on the wonders of the natural world. The botanical discovery doesn't stop after the sun goes down. At night, visitors can explore the verdant pathways lit by millions of twinkling bulbs for the second annual Garden Lights, Holiday Nights, or decamp to the conservatory for a look at a mammoth collection of species orchids and the chirping poison dart frogs that keep them company. Amid its ever-changing visual display, the Atlanta Botanical Garden hosts frequent events such as concerts, holiday light shows, seasonal festivals, and an annual member-plant dance.
