The Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation is proud to announce the dates and times for the 19th Annual “Holiday Lights in the Garden” event. This year’s celebration will begin on Friday, November 29, 2019 and this year we have extended our nights to Saturday, January 4, 2020 to include New Years Eve and New Years. The Gardens open every evening from 5:30pm to 9:30pm for viewing. Admission is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person over the age of 13. To add to the sights and sounds, we have arranged a variety of local volunteer talent to perform nightly. Check our website for a weekly Playbill listing nightly performers. Santa visits regularly throughout the event through December 23, but be sure to call in advance in case he had to go back to the North Pole to handle an issue with the toy making. During the event, updates are available at the “Holiday Lights in the Gardens” Hotline: 727-582-5800. Parking, including handicapped parking, is available at our primary event entrance, at 12211 Walsingham Road. Additional parking will be available at our Ulmerton entrance, but parking is limited so come early or choose to visit us on our non-peak days— primarily weeknights. Groups are encouraged to contact our office in advance, so we can help make your experience a memorable one.
