The 13th annual Festival of Lights will happen rain or shine every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from November 24 through December 17 at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. The doors open at 5PM and last entry is at 7PM. This unique light show is 100% original and lovingly handmade. This year will include an exciting new route, new displays created by MCBG staff and volunteers, and more dazzling backdrops for your family photos. The gift shop will be open and there will be hot cocoa, apple cider, and sweets available at the FOG Holiday Cafe. Santa Claus will be available for photos and wish lists on November 26, December 3, and December 10. We are bringing back the Festival Shuttle to help accommodate more guests at this beloved event (details below). Bundle up and enjoy the imaginative displays, sweet treats, and holiday fun during this year?s Festival of Lights!
