Night Lights in the Garden continues to grow in concept and popularity, along with the tropical plant collections at Naples Botanical Garden. The immersive art and conservation experience brings holiday enchantment to Naples without a crystal of snow in sight. Night Lights in the Garden began years ago as a small, no-frills celebration of winter primarily illuminated with
tiki torches and string lit ornaments.
This year, configuring thousands of lights will require three weeks of continuous work. Trees will be decked from top to bottom and brighten the night with colorful displays of bromeliads and more. Today, Night Lights in the Garden is a well-loved tradition across Southwestern Florida. Area visitors from across the globe and neighbors nearby alike delight in this tropical holiday spectacle.
Fortunately, the Garden maintains its organic touch with plentiful support from local businesses, volunteers, and neighbors. Marking the second year of collaboration on Night Lights in the Garden, as well as the inaugural Fall Walk, held in late October 2018, is Artistic Science, a Naples-based event production company with an expertise and zeal for imaginative light design. The entire event is truly a community effort, with a full schedule of performances from longtime resident
favorites Opera Naples, Naples Ballet, and a varied roster of Naples based musicians.
Lawn games the entire family can partake in will be held on the Kapnick Caribbean Garden Lawn. On select nights, guests will enjoy the Wishing Tree, through which a heartfelt wish is placed on a ribbon and then carefully displayed among the best wishes for the year ahead of fellow attendees. Fogg Café and the Berger Shop in the Garden will be open throughout Night Lights from 6 – 9 pm. Fogg Café’s festive offerings will satisfy your every craving and anyone on your holiday gifting list
will be checked off following a visit to the Shop in the Garden.
As you might already know, a visit to the Garden is rarely the same experience twice. As the living plant collections at
Naples Botanical Garden continuously grow and change, Night Lights in the Garden will follow suit. Conditions will be just
right for a series of awe-inspiring nights in the tropical winter wonderland at Naples Botanical Garden.
