Dominion GardenFest of Lights

December 21st, 2010

Most people enjoy Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens during the spring when it’s in full bloom, but we suggest seeing it dressed to the nines in over 700,000 Christmas Lights this Holiday Season.

This year’s theme  is “Fire and Ice,” with more lights than ever gracing the gardens with exquisite ice sculptures. World famous artist Hans Godo Frabel takes center stage this year with his “Glorious Glass in the Garden” exhibit.

Family fun is to be had by all, with a fun magical maze and Tree House. A fire pit will help you warm up and you can also toast s’mores; coffee and hot chocolate are also available. You might spot Old Saint Nick himself strolling through the gardens with the Fire and Ice Princess. Also, e guarantee that dollhouses and model trains will bring out your inner child.

The Robins Tea House and Garden Cafe offer holiday dinner every evening from five to nine. Every Thursday during the event, local musicians perform acoustic versions of holiday favorites in the library. You can enjoy the festive lights now through January 10 from five to ten in the evening. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children.

We at the mansion hope you don’t miss out on this holiday favorite, fun for the whole family.
