A Dazzling ‘Lightscape’ Experience Will Illuminate Houston This Holiday Season

Let there be light!

While things may look a bit grim at the moment 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 Arboretum into an illuminated night experience that is not to be missed,” the Arboretum 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.”


On November 12, the one-mile trail will illuminate the Houston Botanic Garden with Texas-themed light fixtures, worldly installations, and a Cathedral of Light tunnel fixed with 100,000 bulbs.

Lightscape will run on most nights in 15-minute intervals from 5:30 – 8:45 pm to January 16 with the last entry permitted at 9 pm.

Tickets to the experience are now available beginning at $30 for adults, $18 for children (3 – 12), and free for infants 2 and under.
