New York Botanical Garden will ring in the holidays with a new light experience

Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow!

The New York Botanical Garden is adding a splash of color to its holiday celebration. 

This year, the Bronx family attraction will host NYBG Glow, an outdoor light experience that will brighten up the grounds with Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at its center. Visitors can expect thousands of energy-efficient LED lights and festive installations—an ideal backdrop for a family holiday photo op. Plus, there will be dance performances, ice carving demonstrations and other seasonal activities to enjoy (at a distance). 

To comply with state guidelines, the event, which begins Nov 27, requires tickets. Timed entry, limited capacity and social distancing measures will be forced once there. Tickets go on sale beginning Nov 10 at 10am.
