Illuminations

ILLUMINATIONS 2012 will be held seven days a week, 5:30-8:30 p.m. from November 23 through Dec. 30 (excluding Dec.24 and 25). Dec. 26-30 is Kid at heart week, where adults pay $5 when they bring in two cans of food for the Kansas Food Bank. 

Illuminations is a family-friendly event that showcases Botanica’s 17 acres of beautiful gardens in a completely different light. It has become one of the area’s premier holiday events, but this year the event is getting a festive facelift! With hundreds of thousands of lights and new themed displays, Illuminations will be Kansas’ largest holiday light display. More than 5,000 new LED luminaries will line garden pathways, more than 120 trees will be expertly lit, and many structures will be lit with twinkling white lights. As visitors enjoy their walk through the Gardens, they will enjoy the warm glow of luminaries, the sound of electric trains traveling around pine trees, the reflections of trees on the pond, the magic of the flocked forest at Candy Cane Lane, the fragrance of chimineas, the warmth of hot cocoa and cider and the joy of live musical groups. In total, hundreds of thousands of lights combine with nature to create a stunning atmosphere and a “HO, HO, HO” lot of holiday fun! Support from special events such as Illuminations help us showcase the Gardens, maintain Botanica as one of the Midwest’s leading botanical gardens and further our mission.
