“This year, the botanical garden is embracing the outdoor beauty of the winter holidays,” said President and CEO, Jill Koski, “twinkle lights in snow-covered trees and other outdoor elements expanding on traditional favorites of Glow. We are delighted to provide a celebration that will capture the benefits of getting outside in a safe, yet magical way.”
From November 21 to January 3, the Glow is illuminating the botanical garden with numerous holiday experiences for the whole family to marvel:
“Visitors to Glow will witness a festive display on the terrace complete with giant GLOW letters emblazoned with botanical décor in the reflecting pool,” the event website reads. “Dynamic lighting and a self-guided story trail that connects four different winter garden vignettes.”
Additionally, Glow will feature special holiday programming throughout the holiday season. Events include a chainsaw carving demonstration from Chris Pascoe of Carvings by Chris this Saturday, as well as live music from Kiki N.Me on the Geis Terrace, a Krampusnacht with the Ohio Krampus Society & DJ Kris Koch.
Be sure to check out their other staple holiday features such as their holiday gnome homes in the Glasshouse, marvelously decorated 16-foot-tall white fir trees, and decked out gingerbread houses. To ensure that visitors are tempted to take a bite out of these alluring abodes, Marigold Catering will be serving an assortment of on-the-go snacks available for purchase.
Due to the circumstances, visitors must purchase their timed-entry tickets online in advance. Other safety precautions are in place at Glow, including a one-way guided path through indoor and outdoor experiences.
Entry for adults costs $15, while tickets for children aged 3 – 12 are priced at $10 a piece. Children 2 and under are permitted free entry. For more details, visit the garden’s website.
