Botanic Wonderland Holiday Nights in the Garden 2019

San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas CA

 

Everyone enjoys holiday lights at this time of year, and a special place to enjoy them is the San Diego Botanic Garden.

 

The Botanic Wonderland Holiday Nights in the Garden at the San Diego Botanic Gardens in Encinitas opened December 3rd. And this year is something new and very special! (photo links to website)

 

Botanic Wonderland Holiday Nights in the Garden

 

The San Diego Botanic Garden is a beautiful place to enjoy at any time of the year. But no one would deny it’s especially magical during the holiday season. This year the Botanic Wonderland Holiday Nights in the Garden (formerly the Garden of Lights) is held at the new Dickinson Family Education Conservatory.

 

Here’s the schedule – Hours are 5 to 8:30 pm:

December 3 – 8

December 10 – 15

December 17 – 23

December 26 - 30

 

I vividly remember our visit to the Garden of Lights some years ago - it was a special place to visit over the holidays, and the lights and gardens were truly magical; I bet this new display is equally impressive.

 

With some old holiday traditions continuing on as well as new features, what can you expect at this family holiday festival?

 

A 10’ poinsettia tree, visits with Santa (5:30 – 8:30 pm before Christmas), visits with the Snow Princess after Christmas (5:30 – 8:30 pm), scavenger hunt, sand art, Holiday card making, a snow play area (fresh snow delivered regularly), a light tunnel, face painting, a food truck court, holiday beverages including cider and hot chocolate, live music from 6 – 8 pm, and so much more.

 

Here’s the information on tickets, with a variety of ticket options. There is great news for Active Duty US Military – you get free admission along with up to 5 family members, by showing your Active US Military ID or your Active US Military Dependent ID at the entrance.

 

If you haven’t visited this botanic treasure in Encinitas, North San Diego County, the Botanic Wonderland Holiday Nights in the Garden could be the perfect time.

 

And also new this year…the Hamilton Children’s Garden and Toni’s Treehouse will be lit up and ready for kids to play!

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - These are the types of exhibits I really enjoy seeing at Christmas. This should be really fun.

It really does Ron and Alexandra Seigel . Every now and then we go out and tour around to enjoy them.

There is lots going on in Carlsbad this weekend...unfortunately, while we really need it there is going to be rain all weekend.

The light shows that they put on at these places are amazing, I think they light up our botanical gardens as well.

Good morning, Jeff. I love holiday lights. Nothing puts one in the Christmas spirit faster than bright and twinkling lights.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS,

This looks like a wonderful event to bring on that holiday cheer. The Phoenix Botanical Garden does a similar event and I have traveled there a couple of times to see it.

Thanks Bob Crane  - it's a pretty special place to visit.

Hi Sharon Lee  - we have only been once for the lights but it was stunning.

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson 

The gardens are beautiful anytime - we have been a bunch of times for various events - but the holidays are particularly special.

I have to agree with you Nina Hollander  We personally do not do a lot of outdoor decorating but I enjoy what others do! And we enjoy driving around to see different areas and the Village!
