The 4th Annual Nights of 1000 Lights celebration looks to be the best yet with all new light displays featuring more lights than ever including an expanded light tunnel, RGB Triklet programmable lights, light orbs and light tubes.  In the Central Garden a live-cut 20' Christmas tree will feature "natural bling" and is best described as a modern style with natural elements.  Other unique elements at this year's event will include a light show in the Tropical Conservatory that will have you "singing in the rain," a flurry of fun awaits visitors in the Big Shade Garden and a red sparkle ceiling will dazzle in the Fern Grotto.  The man in red, Santa Claus, will be taking up residence in the Adobe where you can pose for pictures and tell him all your Christmas wishes.  For a Caribbean Christmas experience sail on up to the Tea Garden where a pink paradise of poinsettias and flamingos and the sounds of Christmas music with a Calypso influence set the scene.    

All guests will enjoy complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, cookies and a make your own 'smores station.  The will also be a photo-op with Santa, holiday photo booth and fun arts and crafts activities.  Additionally, there will be a no-host wine and beer bar, tamale vendor and holiday shopping available in the Garden Shop.
