Every year, during the winter season, Botanical Gardens in Wichita puts on their astonishing light show. The lights start from November 24th until December 31st from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every evening. All throughout several gardens, all different kinds of lights and designs are put out for people of all ages to enjoy. Each garden is transformed into a differently themed winter wonderland. Even the Children’s Garden is turned into a kids most magical dream. The entire garden is covered with decorated trees and kid friendly showings such as the train and the big tree filled with objects for them to search for. There are plenty of smiling faces at the gardens.

As you walk through the different gardens and admire the lights it won’t take long until you smell the little shops selling essentials on evenings like these such as hot chocolate, popcorn and other snacks. People attending like to take a break to sit, listen to music and sip on a cup of hot chocolate. Not to mention they have an adult hot toddy bar which makes everyone feel at home.

Overall the illuminations are a great way to celebrate the holidays without spending too much nor putting too much effort. Walking around the whole place brings all your seasonal dreams come true. Join Botanica in making it one of your traditions!
