A seasonally crisp evening greeted the return of Lightscape on Wednesday night as visitors sipped hot chocolate and meandered through the spectacular light and sound transforming the grounds of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for the holiday season.
From a pulsating disco ball tree to soothing swirls of leaves gently appearing over the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, there is a visual experience to suit every mood. Just two of the features from the 2021 debut, the Winter Cathedral, a popular selfie spot, and the Fire Garden with 17 new displays by local and international artists joining them along the mile-long trail meandering through the 52-acre garden.
The after-dark show will light up the garden through January 8, 2023. The entry fee for adults is $40 ($36 for members), while tickets for children ages 3 to 12 are $20 ($18 for members). For more information and to book tickets, visit the event page online.
