Things to do in Huntsville: Huntsville Botanical Garden 'Night Blooms' coming this summer

The garden will be illuminated with thousands of lights and botanical lanterns.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — The Huntsville Botanical Garden has announced a new night event coming this summer.

The Night Blooms event will take place at the Garden from July 21 through September 26. The garden will be illuminated with thousands of lights and botanical lanterns.

“Night Blooms is a re-imagination of the Garden we know and love,” said Sue Wagner, CEO of the Garden. “The plants and animals we encounter in the Garden every day have been reimagined as illuminated, technicolor and larger than life. The result is an experience that’s almost dreamlike, where guests have the chance to see their environment in a new light, quite literally. We are taking an ordinary walk through the Garden and showing just how extraordinary it can be.”

Guests will follow a one-mile walk through the garden after sunset. Vignettes of botanical lanterns, intricately designed by trained artisans, will be integrated in the natural surroundings to bring plants and wildlife to life. Poppies, turtles, orchids, spiders, maple trees and more will be lit up by these lanterns.

“Night Blooms is a brand-new experience, unique to Huntsville,” said Wagner. “You can’t find this event anywhere else besides here at the Garden.”

The event will take place Wednesday through Sunday evenings from July 21 through September 26. Ticket prices range from $20 to $35 for adults and $12 to $23 for children. All tickets must be reserved in advance for a designated entry time.
