Garden Lights, Holiday Nights dazzles with new colors, displays

Tickets are on sale for Atlanta’s favorite holiday tradition, Garden Lights, Holiday Nights, featuring a spectacular new high-tech display and all new cool-colored lights sure to enthrall visitors of all ages.
In the new “Nature’s Wonders” display, guests will be dazzled by cutting-edge technology that allows lights -- all suspended from the grand treetops of Storza Woods – to be choreographed to music and sound effects during the seventh annual show presented nightly November 11 – January 7.  The display features a massive theatre stage-like curtain of vertical lights forming a wall of brilliant colors that can be programmed to music and special sound effects.
“You’re going to hear lots of oohs and aahs over a display that’s inspired by the fascinating phenomena of the natural world – its land, water, and sky – rendered dramatically through light and sound,” said Mary Pat Matheson, the Garden’s President & CEO.  “It’s definitely going to be the talk of the light show and something new for people to be excited about!”
“Nature’s Wonders” includes more than 1,000 vertically hung strands of multi-colored lights in 16-, 32-, and 64-foot lengths suspended from the tops of the woods’ tallest hardwoods.  And because the curtain-like screen extends over the Canopy Walk and the valley below, it can be experienced from multiple vantage points.
The special effects created by synchronized light, music, and sound will portray the wonders of nature – including ocean waves, thunderstorms, snowfalls, rainbows, sunrises/sunsets, meteor showers, and more.  Much of the music will be classical crowd pleasers inspired by nature, including some holiday-themed ones.
Elsewhere in the Garden, look for a return of perennial favorites like the Great Lawn’s dancing “Orchestral Orbs”, towering cone trees, giant candles, the serene Ice Goddess, and enveloping “Tunnel of Light” – most emphasizing all-new cooler hues of green, blue, and teal.
In addition, the Holiday Model Trains will be chugging and the Glow Bar hopping, while s’more-roasting firepits and cash bars will take the chill off both kids and kids at heart.  Round out the evening by reserving a table at Longleaf restaurant or grab some takeout at the Quick Café.  Planning a party?  For private rentals, call 404-591-1555.
