The holiday season in Houston is big and bright this year. Now, Houston Botanic Garden is celebrating the return of their dazzling Lightscape experience.
“Lightscape, a holiday lights and music event like no other, features a winding path through the Garden lined with stunning immersive installations – both well-loved favorites from the 2021 debut, and several new ones, including two making their U.S. debut – set to popular seasonal tunes.,” the Houston Botanic Garden writes on its website.
“The creativity of Lightscape’s international artists sets the stage for a festive experience for all ages, including fire pits for s’mores and dramatic backdrops for social posts, all within the naturally beautiful setting of a living museum for plants.”
From November 18 until January 1, the one-mile trail will illuminate the Houston Botanic Garden with breathtaking light installations including a tunnel of 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 1 with the trail closing at 10 pm. Be apprised, the Lightscape experience will not be operating on select dates, including: November 21-22, 24, 28-30; Dec.1, 5-7, 12-13, 25.
Ticket prices vary depending on the day of the week. Tickets to the experience start at $26 for adults on off peak nights – Dec. 8, 14-15, 19-20 – $16 for children (3 – 12), and free for infants 2 and under.
