Temperatures may be dropping, but the fun doesn't stop at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Our real estate agents share a sneak preview of upcoming holiday festivities at this popular attraction near Richmond homes for sale.
Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights
The gardens are beautiful in daylight but are truly spectacular when lit up during the evening. This year, "Seeds of Light" is the theme for the Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights. Based on the idea that tiny seeds provide the spark of life, more than half a million lights are part of a creative display inspired by the connection between seeds and fruit.
Once again, all your favorite exhibits and activities will be part of the festival:
Time-specific tickets must be purchased in advance. Admission is $17-$20 for adults and $8-$12 for kids. For an additional $10 fee, make it a FLEX ticket that permits a one-time transfer to a different day and time. Admission for members is $10 for adults and $7 for kids and there are free member nights Jan. 2-8.
The festival opens to the public on November 21 and runs through January 8. Hours are 4 p.m. - 10 p.m. each night.
