Gardens of Light

This event features a half-mile loop of perennial flower beds, huge sculptural flowers, grapevines, butterflies, a holiday village, and other favorite garden creatures – all constructed entirely from holiday lights. Volunteering is a great way to experience this whimsical, twinkling winter wonderland while also giving back to our community. You are more than welcome to sign up for overlapping shifts to stay for the entire evening. Training provided at the start of the shift. Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age to volunteer alone.
