Feel the excitement in this crisp cool air…Its electric from the over 1 million twinkling lights at Brookside Gardens, Garden of Lights.
“Walkthrough the outdoor twinkling lights and glimmering displays that dot the paths and flowerbeds throughout the 50 acres in Wheaton. You will be dazzled by the computerized light display matching lights with music, fog bubbles, and there will be great opportunities to get that perfect selfie.”
Jeff Patterson the Manager of this festive attraction shared many important facts, like the install began the last week of July (recently with a full crew), there are 450 forms all hand made, the only sale of tickets is on Eventbrite, but I think most important is the return of two beloved favorites Nessy and the Giraffe.
Come and judge your favorite for yourself. Opening weekend is November 19th, 20th, & 21st. Then Friday, November 26th – Sunday, January 2nd straight through every night, 5:30pm-9:30pm, except November 22-25 and December 24-25, 2021.
The in house fabricator creates and wields these forms then they are hand woven by Jeff’s crew into flowers, animals, and other natural elements. Look for the new 2 color wraps, themed colored gardens, and a butterfly display paying homage to the summer show, Wings of Fancy.
To make the lines of Garden of Lights smoother print or have your device out when you arrive. The tickets are timed entry with a 30 minute grace arrival time, you’ll be shown to the next parking spot to keep it moving and 3 + older need a ticket.
