Nights of a Thousand Lights - Members Only Evening

Date: 06-Dec-2018

Thursday, December 6 - A Special Evening for Members and their Guests

5 -8 pm

The Annual Nights of 1000 Lights celebration will kick-off on Thursday, December 6th with a very special Members Only Night.  Members are treated to the first viewing of our annual holiday light display.  

This year's celebration looks to be the best yet with all new light displays featuring more lights than ever.  Visitors will enjoy a flurry of fun in the Central Garden, boogie through the disco inFERNo, and take a trip through the glistening light tunnel.  Soak up the technicolor displays as you walk throughout the Gardens. The Tea Garden has been transformed into a Hawaiian Christmas.  Don't forget to visit the gnome village on your way see the Historical Adobe which has been transformed into Santa's Workshop (Santa will be visiting from the North Pole on Friday and Saturday night).  There will be live music all night long and a tree lighting ceremony at 5:30 pm.

Member's Night includes a make your own 'smores station and two ticket options.  Option One is similar to previous years and includes food stations, entertainment and relaxed strolling through the Gardens to view the light displays.  Option Two includes everything in option one plus a three-course Christmas dinner by Chef Pascal Olhats.
