Longwood Gardens is offering two fantastic new ways to see Bruce Munro’s illuminating installation, Light, with “Light Nights.”
The unique garden experience that Munro has created, reminiscent of flowers, glowing towers and cascading raindrops, offers guests the rare opportunity to explore Longwood Gardens after hours. Read more about the exhibition here.
In conjunction with it, Longwood has been hosting fun “Light Nights,” with a June and July edition that were hugely successful. And there are still two opportunities to experience the event this summer.
Next up is “Lantern Light,” a chance to create your own night time lantern using water bottles and glow sticks to release into the evening sky while watching an Appalachain clogging performance from Fiddlekicks,this Friday, August 10 at 7 p.m.
Then, Friday, September 14, take part in a compostable water bottle art project, gaze the constellations and watch live juggling acts performed by Gizmo Guys starting at 7 p.m. for a “Star Light”-themed Light Night. Stargazing will occur, weather permitting.
Light Nights are free with the purchase of an admission ticket to Bruce Munro’s Light installation.
And bear in mind that Longwood’s spectacular Fireworks & Fountains show returns this Saturday, August 11, illuminating the glorious Light exhibition with even more intensity.
