Denver Botanic Gardens continues tradition of colorful lights

BLOSSOMS OF LIGHT (Dec. 5 – Jan. 1)
TRAIL OF LIGHTS (Nov. 28-30 & Dec. 5 – Jan.1)

Denver Botanic Gardens continues its annual holiday tradition of adorning the gardens and farm with colorful lights to celebrate the festive season. Blossoms of Light (York Street) features colorful displays throughout the Gardens. Trail of Lights (Chatfield) offers a more rustic, yet no less dazzling, experience with a decorated trail. Trail of Lights is open Thanksgiving weekend (November 28-30) and then both locations are open December 5 – January 1, from 5:30 – 9 p.m., including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

This year’s Blossoms of Light presents a tunnel of twinkling lights, a brand new path and a fire pit at the Hive Garden Bistro. Colorful lights turn the Japanese Garden, South African Plaza, Cottonwood Border, Shady Lane and more gardens into magical winter landscapes. Strolling carolers perform on select evenings, the Boettcher Memorial Center is decorated and the Shop at the Gardens is open for holiday gift buying. Visitors may purchase roasted nuts, sweet treats and hot beverages.

Trail of Lights presents colorful light displays with a cozy country aesthetic. The 1880s Hildebrand Ranch homestead is decorated with a vintage Colorado Christmas theme. The barn and antique tractors are also illuminated, along with the children’s play area and tree house that are synchronized to holiday music. A warming hut is offered along with free hayrides and live entertainment on select evenings. Treats and hot beverages are available for purchase.

The popular HoloSpex 3-D glasses are sold at both locations. The majority of the lights are LED, reflecting the Gardens’ commitment to conservation and sustainability.
