Houston Botanic Garden presents Lightscape
December 21 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 5:30 pm, repeating until January 1, 2023
An internationally acclaimed holiday lights and music event like no other will return to the Houston Botanic Garden this winter with Lightscape. In its second year, the outdoor illuminated trail includes stunning new immersive installations – in addition to well-loved favorites – set to seasonal tunes along a winding path through the Garden.
More than 80 percent of this year’s trail will feature installations never before seen in Houston, including a spectacular display of Bluebonnets, an installation unique to Texas.
The installation Framed by Mandylights sees twenty geometric arches lined with brilliant color changing, pixel mapped LED fittings to create a unique tunnel of light effect with a distinctly modern edge.
And, The Nautilus Forest, also by Mandylights draws from both nature and precise geometry to create an illuminated forest of spiralling trees, with more than 40,000 individually controlled RGB pixels at their disposal. Each of the 24 trees stands up to 15 feet tall; together they merge into a meandering forest that entices visitors to enter and perhaps lose themselves within.
In addition to basking in the wonder evoked by the immersive light installations on the trail, visitors will also enjoy festive food and drinks, including fire pits for roasting s’mores, in the Garden’s inviting Pine Grove and spacious Culinary Garden.
