Florida Botanical Gardens Holiday Lights
Celebrate the season at the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation's annual Holiday Lights. More than 750,000 lights will illuminate the thousands of plants and trees that already make the gardens shine year-round. Home-grown entertainers will perform nightly. Refreshments available to purchase.
This year we're trying something a little different. We'll arrive early, before sunset, and photograph some of the many flowers and plants in the botanical gardens. Then, when the sun sets at 5:37, we'll start photographing the lights. From 7 PM to 8 PM there will be dancers and jugglers in the plaza area. Flash is permitted.
There is a suggested donation of $2 per adult. This is a weather dependent event. Rain or high winds will cause the cancellation ation of this event. If you have questions, check the site about two hours before the scheduled start time for cancellation notices.
Tripods are recommended, but using higher ISO settings can be used as well. Afterwards we'll head to a local restaurant for snacks and chimping.
