Nights of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens
Chauncey Smith | 08 Oct 2014
With the Christmas season approaching, Brookgreen Gardens is preparing for their annual Nights of a Thousand Candles celebration, a breathtaking holiday display that has dazzled visitors for years. Over 5,500 hand-lit candles are situated around the sculpture and botanical exhibits, reflecting off tranquil ponds and bathing spectators in a warming glow. Tremendous light displays are also planned, with centuries old live oaks enveloped in lights and making for striking displays against the cool winter sky.
In addition to the immaculate visual exhibits, Nights of a Thousand Candles offers an impressive slate of nightly musical accompaniment, with carolers, bell ringers and other musical acts performing along the viewing route. You'll also be able to grab refreshments like a warm cup of cider to enjoy along your walk, and catering will be provided by Inlet Affairs for those that would like to make a dinner date out of the excursion.
Nights of a Thousand Candles is scheduled for nine nights this December from Thursday to Saturday: December 4th to December 6th, December 11th to December 13th and December 18th to December 20th. The celebration runs daily from 3 PM to 10 PM. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to watch the process of lighting the candles and to plan their tour route. For photography, festival organizers recommend dusk as the ideal time for pictures to be taken.
