Tickets go on sale Sept. 30 for Garden Lights, Holiday Nights presented by Invesco QQQ, the 12th annual Christmas tradition that sets the tone for Atlanta residents and tourists alike.
Tickets are timed and available only by online reservation to ensure guests have a safe and comfortable walking experience during the event from November 12 to January 14.
New to this year’s light show will be an installation of large illuminated metal sculptures of birds flocking to the newly refurbished Anne Cox Chambers Garden. French artist Cédric Le Borgne’s ethereal sculptures include birds perched among hardwoods, measuring up to 10 feet wide and 16 feet long and glowing under warm white lights.
Also look out for three of the massive sculptures from the current Origami in the Garden exhibit that will remain for show, dramatically lit for the holiday season: the giant ‘Hero’s Horse’ near the Great Lawn, the towering floral bouquet ‘ Scents of Gratitude” in the Skyline Garden pond and the “Ghost Deer” in front of Longleaf Restaurant.
And, as always, many fan favorites will be making an encore, including Storza Woods’ “Nature’s Wonders” vertically moving light curtain with an all-new soundtrack; the Flower Walk’s “Glowing Grove” of trees programmed to change color; and “Ice Goddess” and the “Orchestral Orbs”, two perennial crowd pleasers since the series’ earliest days.
