Gardens Aglimmer

Events at Waterfront Botanical Gardens are toward the top of my list of those I’m disappointed to have missed because of this damn virus. So make sure to not miss the second annual Gardens Aglimmer, a great chance to see the growing gardens in the warm glow of holiday lights. It’s a self-guided tour through an array of light installations, including Moravian stars, flowers, a multicolor tunnel of lights, the (new) Beargrass Creek Pathway under icicle arches, a waterfall stream aglow, and much more. Tickets are limited to four timed slots for each of the six nights the event runs (Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 19), but, once inside, you’re welcome to stay as long as you’d like… until lights out at 9 p.m. Kids under 12 are free, no pets are allowed and masks are required. This is a great holiday season (and safe) event for the whole family, as we look forward to a better 2021 and many more events at this budding local attraction.
