Time Out says

Take a twinkly walk through South Coast Botanic Garden during the return of this illuminated, after-hours installation, which runs from just before Thanksgiving until after New Year’s.

GLOW will mark its second year with the addition of themed nights (think: ugly sweaters, neon) and some new lit-up areas, including the lavender garden, koi pond, fuschia garden and lower meadow.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on October 18, with a member presale during the two weeks prior.

During last year’s debut, we found multicolored uplights all over the Palos Verdes Peninsula garden, all set to a genre-spanning mix of music. Nothing was overtly Christmasy; instead, the lighting set up an alternative, illuminated perspective of the botanical residents (we thought the banyan grove, desert collection and succulent-filled living wall were particularly beautiful). It took us about 45 minutes to leisurely walk through GLOW (at the time it was a one-way loop due to distancing requirements), including semi-frequent stops to snap the photos you see above.
