Festival of Lights

Each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens transforms into a spectacular show of glittering color with the  8th Annual Festival of Lights. Take a stroll along twinkling pathways lined with inventive displays when the Succulent Garden morphs into an underwater scene of seaweed and floating jellyfish. A sailing brig that struck nearby reefs back in 1850 is reanimated with dazzling lights amidst the Gardens’ nationally recognized Heath and Heather Collection. Runs rain or shine each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening from November 24 through December 17. Dress for winter, sorry, no dogs are allowed at Festival of Lights.
