Let there be light!
While things may look a little hazy for the upcoming fall and winter season, the Botanic Garden is giving Houstonians a light at the end of the tunnel — or rather, a literal light tunnel.
“Lightscape is an internationally acclaimed extravaganza of light, art and music from London that transforms the Houston Botanic Garden into an illuminated night experience that is not to be missed,” the Houston Botanic Garden writes on its website.
“Wander through the magnificent Winter Cathedral, experience the breathtaking Fire Garden and more. Lightscape is a truly memorable, family-friendly walking event that is perfect for holidays entertainment and gatherings.”
From now until January 2, the one-mile trail will illuminate the Houston Botanic Garden with Texas-themed light fixtures, worldly installations, and a Winter Cathedral fixed with 100,000 bulbs.
“Houston Botanic Garden looks forward to sharing with visitors the magic of Lightscape, a new holiday lights show designed specifically around the natural beauty of Houston’s living museum for plants,” said Claudia Gee Vassar, president and general counsel of Houston Botanic Garden. “We expect this to be an especially festive holiday season, and we believe Lightscape at the Garden will provide the perfect backdrop for friends and family to gather, celebrate, and make lasting memories. Lightscape also serves as a way to introduce the Garden to those who haven’t yet experienced it, while showing it off in a whole new light to those who have visited during daylight previously.”
Lightscape will run on most nights in 15-minute intervals from 5:30 – 8:45 pm to January 2 with the last entry permitted at 9 pm.
Tickets to the experience are now available beginning at $23 for adults, $16 for children (3 – 12), and free for infants 2 and under.
