Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Gardens was nominated as one of 20 gardens for USA Today’s Best Botanic Gardens Holiday Lights poll. It seems the rest of the country is figuring out what the people of Denver have known for thirty years. This garden has the best lights around, and it seems to get better every year. In fact, the Denver Botanic Gardens has expanded Blossoms of Light for this year.
This year’s event will run through Jan. 1 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., including holidays. Tickets are $16 for adults and $13 for children ages 3 to 15 when purchased in advance. The prices go up by $5 each if you purchase at the door.
Get the details on this show, and get ready for the Christmas event of the season.
More than a Simple Light Display
There are lots of light displays in the Denver area, but none come close to this one. First, it takes around an hour to make it through all the lights, so this is a huge display. It’s also unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Take the interactive display, for instance. You can play one of the instruments located at the display and watch as the lights react to the sounds. The display will also react to the sound of your voice, so have a little chat with it while you’re there.
Just in case the lights aren’t enough, you can take in a caroling performance as well. There are carolers from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on select nights. If you want to see some carolers close to Christmas, Zelda Blue will be there on Dec. 30. That’s just one of the many nights you can enjoy some music.

Get Engaged at Blossoms of Light
Have a special someone you’re ready to pop the question to? You can do it at Blossoms of Light. The Denver Botanic Garden has Blossoms of Light Engagement packages available. You will get a full hour atop the Green Roof, where you can enjoy the lights. You can also bring up to three guests and a bottle of champagne. Just imagine how magical it would be to get engaged during this event. Plus, you’d have a great story to tell later.
You will love the bright lights, interactive displays, and carolers you’ll find at Blossoms of Light, but the fun doesn’t have to stop when you leave. Keep the fun going well past the holiday season with a new ride from Mike Shaw Subaru in Thornton, Colorado. From sedans to SUVs, we have you covered.
