Seasons of Lights

Washington Gardener Magazine is a sponsor of Brookside's Garden of Lights and we will have a Contest for free passes to Brookside's Garden of Lights as our Reader Contest next month. The show runs 11/26/08-1/4/09 (except Christmas eve and Christmas day).

A few tips on visiting the light show:
~ Go to the Visitor Center first and buy the 3-D glasses for the kiddies and yourselves -- makes for a really fun evening and you can take the glasses home to stare at your own tree and neighborhood lights.
~ Go on "off" nights - this year they are open Mon-Thurs -- the line of cars is much shorter and it is $5 less than the busier weekend nights.
~ Don't miss the new creatures - lion, giraffe, etc. and the ever popular Nessie and croaking Frog.
~ Car or van pool! Fit in as many folks as you can as the price is per vehicle not per person.
~ Bundle up - you'll be walking outside for 30+ minutes or so - and for your own sake, don't wear heels.
~ Look down. Even though your distracted by all the gorgeous light displays, be aware that the paths are dark and there may be unexpected steps - especially be careful on wet or icy nights.
~ Bring a toy or nonperishable food item to donate.
~ Finally, fill out the visitor's survey to be eligible for a prize drawing and tell them Washington Gardener Magazine sent you :-).
