GBBG Garden of Lights

Thousands of visitors will head to the Green Bay Botanical Garden Fridays and Saturdays 5:00-9:00 PM and Sundays 5:00-8:00 PM from November 29 until December 30 to view annual Garden of Lights. Over 50,000 people visited last holiday season to see the garden transformed into a stunning winter landscape featuring botanical light displays inspired by its natural features.  
WPS Garden of Lights glows almost exclusively using energy-efficient LED lights, or light-emitting diodes, which are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material rather than a traditional filament. They not only consume up to 80% less electricity than traditional incandescent lights but also have a life span of five years or more, more than doubling the traditional light lifespan.



After viewing the light show, visitors can head back to the Winterberry CafĂ© to warm up with some refreshments, while listening to songs of the season performed by a variety of local entertainers. A model train exhibit set up by the G-Gager is on display.   And a number of trees are decorated with ornaments crafted from the garden.

This tree is adorned with
wasp nests, gourd bird houses,
dried apple and orange slices,
and ornaments made of seed pods. 

A tall tree in the lobby is decorated
with dried flower bouquets,
strings of dried chilies and
bird nests
And G-Gagers will return with their model railroad display
