SAN ANTONIO – The immersive holiday light display Lightscape will return to the San Antonio Botanical Garden for the 2022 holiday season.

Officials with the Botanical Garden said the popular towering cathedral arch tunnel with 100,000 lights will return, along with reimagined installations.

There will be a fire garden and a “more spectacular” display of bluebonnets, which is an installation unique to Texas.

More than 80% of this year’s trail will feature installations that haven’t been seen in San Antonio, officials said.

Festive food and drinks, including an opportunity to roast s’mores, will be available.

Lightscape will run from Nov. 11, 2022 through Jan. 8, 2023 in San Antonio.

Entry times are available every 15 minutes from 5:30 – 9 p.m and most guests finish the trail in 90 minutes.
