In a new tradition that began last year, the State Botanical Garden of Georgia transforms from a regal sprawl of greenery and brickwork into a wintery wonderland for the enjoyment of families far and wide. During select nights, the botanical garden will open after hours with thousands of colorful, shimmering lights. Visitors will take a half-mile long stroll past, around and even through these impressive light structures, with opportunities for roasting marshmallows and enjoying hot or cold beverages along the way. The path will end at a holiday market where, among other festive foods and items, Condor Chocolates’ “Winter WonderBar” can be purchased. A portion of sales from the seasonal treat will go towards education and conservation programs at the State Botanical Garden. To plan your visit, be sure to check out the calendar at www.botgarden.uga.edu/wonderlights.
