‘GARDEN GLOW’ Lights Up Missouri Botanical Garden This Holiday Season

MOBOT Garden Glow

Tickets are now on sale for Garden Glow 2013, the Missouri Botanical Garden’s first-ever winter light exhibit. Visitors will have the opportunity to stroll through the Garden at night surrounded by a spectacle of unique light installations. The exhibit opened Nov. 23, 2013 and runs through Jan. 4, 2014. Tickets are date-specific and sold in limited quantities. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.mobot.org/glow.

For the first time in the Garden’s history, hundreds of thousands of lights will adorn the Climatron®, Kaeser Memorial Maze, Central Axis, Tower Grove House and other iconic locations with unique color combinations. Walkways will be transformed into sensory light tunnels as visitors experience the exhibit’s visual magic. There will be music throughout the installation including a “Snow Ball” in the Central Axis complete with “Dr. Frost and the Freeze Team,” a disc jockey and dancers who will lead choreographed routines and encourage visitors to join in the performance.

The exhibit will also include a traditional candlelight village and an interactive area where visitors can decorate life-size snowmen. Food and drinks will be available at a number of locations on the grounds including stations featuring fire pits for s’more-making. Special Glow gear will be sold throughout the grounds and in the Garden Gate Shop.
