More Sneak Peek Photos of Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights!
by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
We’ve been telling you how excited we are about this year’s Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights for weeks now. Finally, opening day — GardenFest Illumination is nearly here. On Friday, Nov. 28, 2014, the day after Thanksgiving, we’ll illuminate the Garden kicking off the season with a trick bike show by Mike Steidley. Plus, guests will be able to power this 100+ strand, 9-foot tall unicorn by simply riding a bike. But night after night, it’s the lights that draw people in in the dark of winter, and bring holiday cheer and create new family traditions.
There’s no doubt this year’s show, A Legacy in Lights: 120 Years from Bicycle Club to Botanical Garden, is a show stopper. The photos can’t really capture the light show, but they give you an idea of what it’s like. These photos are from one of my favorite local photographers, Sarah Hauser, of the Virginia Tourism Corporation. Sarah visited GardenFest earlier this week for a media preview and really captured how much work and thought went into the design and crafting of the show.
What are you most excited to see this year?
