We are excited to welcome you back to the Garden this December for our Merry & Bright Holiday Light Festival!

After last year's community-based pivot, which saw us taking Merry & Bright "on the road," 2021 will have the Garden glowing once again with a spectacular light display. Take a winter evening stroll, sip hot chocolate, and warm yourself by the fire.
