Tickets to Garden Lights, Holiday Nights, the wildly popular winter-time attraction at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, go on sale Sunday, Oct. 1.

Among the new additions to the yearly installation is the “Nature’s Wonders” display in the Storza Woods, in which lights are suspended in a “curtain” from the treetops and choreographed to music and sound effects.

The special effects created by synchronized sound and light are intended to create illusions of ocean waves, thunderstorms, snowfalls, rainbows, sunrises, sunsets, meteor showers and other phenomena.

“It’s definitely going to be the talk of the light show and something new for people to be excited about,” said Mary Pat Matheson, the garden’s president and CEO.

Other familiar features of the seasonal lighting display will return, including the Great Lawn’s dancing “Orchestral Orbs,” towering cone trees, giant candles, the serene Ice Goddess and the “Tunnel of Light” – most of them with a new emphasis on cooler hues of green, blue and teal LED lights.

This is the garden’s seventh annual light show, and it will be open to the public nightly, 5-10 p.m. (and until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays) from Nov. 11 – Jan. 7.

Tickets will range from $13.95 to $34.95, and are available at the Botanical Garden ticket booth, or online at, or by phone at 404-585-2060.
