Experience one of the largest annual winter light displays in the region at Tower Hill Botanic Garden between Nov. 23 and Dec. 30.
Pre-purchased tickets are required for entry after 4 p.m. to Night Lights, a walking experience throughout 15 acres of glowing gardens, where more than 200,000 lights have been thematically placed among the trees, shrubs, fountains, and statuary to create a magical winter wonderland celebrating plants and nature.
Outdoor highlights include a stroll through a firefly forest, a fire pit with s’mores, a walk-through rainbow tunnel, and picturesque scenes around each corner. Indoors, decorations reign as visitors have the chance to explore a story den from children’s book The Mitten, a model train depicting an alpine village, a towering “tree” made from bromeliad plants, subtropical conservatories packed with lush plants, citrus fruits, and fragrant blooms, and much more.
Farmer and the Fork cafe will provide seasonal dishes, warm drinks, adult beverages, and treats. The Garden Shop will offer unique finds for holiday shoppers. Tickets and more information about the Night Lights experience, an inclusive event that helps provide funding for the four season nonprofit destination, is available at towerhillbg.org.
In addition, Tower Hill is open for general admission from Nov. 23 to Dec. 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for visitors to experience the indoor decorated spaces, including the cafe and the shop, and to walk the dramatic winter landscape in the light of day. Tower Hill is located at 11 French Drive in Boylston, Mass., and can be reached at 508-869-6111.
