What's your favorite way to enjoy GardenFest? One of our favorite parts of GardenFest is seeing it though your eyes. Show us your family traditions, your favorite vistas, your dog enjoying the lights at GardenFest for Fidos-- in a word, tell us why you love Dominion GardenFest of Lights in a photo. Is it a picture of your children enjoying GardenFest for the first time? Bling from the Bling Shop? Warming up with hot cocoa and s'mores around the fire? Maybe you'll luck out and catch that rare photo of snow flurries fluttering through the trees, or maybe you're a talent at capturing the warm glow of light coming from inside the Conservatory? Got a great photo of you and Santa on a Merry Monday? Or a photo of your entire family celebrating the holidays in the Robins Tea House? Tag it #GardenFest when you post it on Instagram -- and you'll be entered to win!
