Night of a Thousand Candles
See Brookgreen Gardens come to life amid the soft glow of more than 5,500 hand lit candles and countless sparkling lights. Walk the paths with a warm cup of cider, hear the sounds of hand bells ringing, carolers singing, and celebrate the season with family and friends. Now in its 15th year, Night of a Thousand Candles continues to delight guests with beautiful candle and lighting displays.
This year's most exciting new feature is an 80 foot tall China Fir tree decorated with 60,000 lights. Located in the arboretum, this tree will be lit at 5:45pm every night in ceremonial fashion. Other new highlights will include The Peppermint Forest in the children's garden, The Ice Garden in the lower left wing garden, and the addition of a garden by candlelight.
Admission is $16 for adults, $10 for children 4-12, and 3 & younger are free. Festivities will begin at 3:00pm and end at 10:00pm on December 4 through 6, December 11 through 13, and December 18 through 20. Brookgreen Gardens is located south of the Caravelle Resort on 17 Business South. Get your tickets online at http://www.brookgreen.org or on-site. This will be an event to remember!
