AUDIENCE:  50,000+++

Dazzle everyone who visits downtown this holiday season: thousands of skaters, families taking photos, basketball fans, folks enjoying a stroll or walking their dogs, and anyone driving through downtown, with merry, spectacular, bright holiday lights! Lighting the Gardens creates a sparkling and festive visual display that will be enjoyed throughout the entire holiday season.  Who let these playful penguins floating on their make-believe iceberg into the Crystal Bridge Lobby? Who festooned the room with beautiful glass icicles hung overhead? Maybe it was the same holiday elves who created the fantastic model train display complete with storefronts, bridges, trees and tunnels. This season, plans are underway to create a bigger and more amazing Winter Wonderland inside and outside the Crystal Bridge!
