|2013 GARDEN D’LIGHTS – CONSTRUCTION EDITION opens next month!|
|Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff|
Brought to you by the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society and Bellevue Parks and Community Services, Garden d’Lights features thousands of lights which transform the Garden into a blossoming winter wonderland.
Garden d’Lights runs from Saturday, November 30, 2013 – Saturday, January 4, 2014, every evening from 5 – 10 pm (last entry at 9:30 pm). It is more important than ever to visit early in the season, early in the week, and early in the evening.
The Garden is undergoing major construction of new facilities. Though d’Lightful as ever, this year’s event features a shorter route and new ticket booth location. As always, hot beverages will be available at the Shorts Visitor Center, and friendly volunteers will provide a warm welcome. Please note that due to construction, there is no on-site limited mobility parking; however there is a drop-off area on Main Street just east of the Garden d’Lights entry. The gift shop is on hiatus until the new building is finished, so look for our amazing new shop at next year’s event!
