DENVER -- See Denver Botanic Gardens in a different light this holiday season as it is transformed into a winter wonderland at Blossoms of Light.
This spectacular display of more than 1 million colorful lights will be draped in elegant designs throughout the Gardens, illuminating the plants, trees and hardscape features. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) make up more than a third of this year’s display, reflecting the Gardens’ commitment to conservation and sustainability.
Romantic kissing spots (marked by ornate balls of mistletoe hung in select areas) and the popular HoloSpex glasses, which magically transform the lights into shimmering 3-D shapes, will return. Special seasonal entertainment, including bell choirs, carolers and dancers, will perform on select nights – either strolling in the Gardens or performing on our indoor stage. Intricate ice sculptures will be placed throughout the gardens paths. The Henry Moore sculptures will be illuminated. The Shop at the Gardens will also be open to better serve our visitors with holiday spirit.
