2020 has been a long year and maybe you’re in the mood for some holiday cheer.

The Idaho Botanical Garden announced its 24th season of Winter Garden aGlow.

People can come to see the lights while savoring drinks and snacks starting November 26 through December 27. Winter Garden aGlow will open for visitors Wednesday through Sunday.

“It’s thanks to the overwhelming support of the community and the hard work of Garden employees, we are able to host this family holiday tradition, even during a difficult year,” Executive Director Erin Anderson said.

There are a few changes. This year the garden is selling limited tickets and is requiring visitors to purchase tickets in advance.

“The event will run a little different to ensure our guest’s safety. But, there will be no shortage of holiday cheer and sparkling lights,” Event Director Gillian Bovard said.

A presale for botanical garden members starts at 10 a.m. on October 26 through November 1. Shortly after, at 10 a.m. on November 2, tickets for Winter Garden aGlow will be available to everyone.
