Get ready, get set…GLOW @AtlBotanical #GardenLights

The lights are twinkling at Atlanta Botanical Garden and it’s the season to be awed and inspired by the beauty of the holiday scenery.

We got a chance to visit Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see the Garden Lights, a vision of beautiful lights illuminating in many forms from an Earth Goddess transforming into an icy vision of wintry radiance with twinkling lights weaving through her tresses to Cobras wrapped in red and white stripes, welcoming visitors as towering candy canes. And what a way to spend the winter break with your kids.

My kids were in awe and in for lights, camera, and action at Atlanta Botanical Gardens!

Green lights trace hypnotic spiral patterns in the snakes’ majestic hoods. Look for a harvest of illuminated corn, brilliant bugs and the grand Poinsettia Tree.

Garden Lights, Holiday Nights not only offers an enchanting in-town experience but also is one of the largest light shows in the country, shimmering nearly 1 million energy-efficient bulbs.

The show, set for November 16 – January 4 at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, will feature almost exclusively LED lights, or special light-emitting diodes, continuing the Garden’s commitment to environmental sustainability. LED lights consume up to 80 percent less electricity than incandescent lights and have a life span more than double that of such traditional lights – five years or more. To further increase energy efficiency, new timing controls allow the Garden to minimize the number of hours the lights are on, providing a large-scale show with small-scale power consumption.

 My kids got to even experience roasting marshmallows over an oven fire. That was truly a lot of fun!
