Wave Hello to Glowing Critters at the 2022 Garden of Lights

You wouldn’t normally stumble upon uncaged giraffes at Brookside Gardens, but don’t be surprised to encounter them at the 2022 Garden of Lights—of course, they’re designed entirely out of twinkling holiday lights. Zoo animals are just some of the illuminated figures you’ll run into at the holiday light display!

Now through New Year’s Day, the decked-out gardens invite guests to explore a glowing section of their sprawling 50-acre park. Its lush gardens brave the cold to get all gussied up for the holiday season, interspersed with cheerful holiday scenes and faux flowers crafted from the lights. Santa and his sleigh, elves chugging away in the workshop, polar bears playing at the North Pole—you’ll see it all when you walk through. Just pick your chosen date and time, and grab a ticket ($10), then bundle up to enjoy your magical stroll through the Garden of Lights. Stop by the garden’s gift shop to grab a memento from your evening of holiday cheer! Note that this event carries on regardless of weather, so be sure to dress appropriately.
