Glow is a crafted and curated Christmas event for the entire family. Bring together the people you love and explore four Christmas-themed light gardens. Take a stroll through a musical light tunnel, where you’ll feel the warmth and wonder of the Christmas season, under the glow of over 500,000 lights. Kids can help Santa locate his lost presents scattered throughout the gardens while parents amble through the Christmas market. And no holiday event is complete without treats and a cup of cheer. Sample the goods from food vendors, grab a drink at the bar, and enjoy a few snacks from one of the many food trucks. It’s all the magic and wonder of an outdoor light exhibit, hosted in a bright and spacious greenhouse. Enjoy the best of this holiday season at Glow.
