SAN ANTONIO – It’s time to start planning for family outings over the holidays, and the San Antonio Botanical Garden has you covered.
Tickets for the botanical garden’s immersive holiday light display, Lightscape, are now on sale.
Guests will get to walk through this immersive light display which will illuminate a one-mile path through the Botanical Garden.
Along the trail will be a towering cathedral arch tunnel with 100,000 lights, according to Lightscape officials.
“This winter lights show will bring to life the natural elements of the Botanical Garden and is the perfect holiday attraction for family and friends,” said San Antonio Botanical Garden CEO Sabina Carr.
Lightscape will open to the public on Nov. 19 and will run through Jan. 2, 2022. Tickets are expected to sell out as they have in other cities like Chicago.
San Antonio Botanical Garden Members will receive a discount on online ticket purchases.
