Naples Botanical Garden Brightens Up The Holidays With Sparkling ‘Night Lights’ Event

Naples Botanical Gardens Night Luights Thousands of twinkling lights, glowing orbs, and sparkling décor illuminate one of Naples’ most popular outdoor venues this December. Naples Botanical Garden announces its annual Night Lights the evenings of December 17 – 23, December 26 – 30, and January 2-4 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. This year, the Scott Florida Garden and new Chabraja Visitor Center will be illuminated, joining the Lea Asian Garden, Kapnick Caribbean and Brazilian Gardens, and the Water Garden, adding to an already spectacular event, making it brighter and more unforgettable than before!

Each evening will include holiday musical performances, family activities, and festive sweets and treats, plus enchanting illumination scenes in the gardens. Nationally touring, award-winning songwriter Julie Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel will perform acoustical arrangements featuring their famous “New American Folk” music. Patchouli’s sound has been described as the “harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings.”
