Illuminations is a complete holiday family event that lasts from the Friday after Thanksgiving through January 4th. These 35 nights of magical holiday family fun allow us to provide the families in our community with an amazing experience.

With over two million lights, Illuminations transforms every single garden area into a different themed holiday display or uniquely lit botanical setting. Thousands of luminaries light your way as you stroll through the paths and gardens, entertained by carolers and live music every night. Larger than life flowers and bugs are placed throughout the Wildflower Garden. Oversized fish and sea creatures turn the Shakespeare Garden into a magical underwater setting. Huge floating trees provide colorful reflections in the main pond. Santa is here every night before Christmas, visiting and taking pictures with all of the children. Enormous sweet treats are a huge hit in Candy Cane Lane and Candy Land! The Downing Children’s Garden brings smiles to young and old with lit monster trees, fairy lights in the musical maze, and fun holiday scenes lighting up every corner. Visitors can even enjoy roasting marshmallows for S'Mores over the fire pits on the main terrace! Hot drinks, popcorn, and other treats are sold throughout the gardens and an adult hot toddy bar is available every night as well. New for 2019 is the Children's Garden Meadow show that takes you to our restored Joyland Carousel! You'll be able to purchase ride tokens for $3 at the front desk and inside the carousel building.
