Davie’s Flamingo Garden invites you to visit the Garden of Lights, opening on December 17.

Garden of lights

Garden of Lights is an annual event organized at the Botanical Gardens and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary. The park will be decorated with thousands of holiday lights and Christmas ornaments. The event will take place after normal opening hours, so please do take into consideration that the animals will not be in their enclosures during the light event. Also, the last guided trolley ride is at 4:30 pm. So, wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the festive lights, holiday goodies, and entertaining music at the park.

The cafe is open during the event selling holiday favorites, as well as last minute gifts. Holiday Market will also take place in front of the Flamingo Gardens on December 17th, 18th, and 19th. The market is free, no need to purchase a ticket, or pay park admission fee. Local vendors and artisans will be selling their holiday goodies and gifts at the market.

Garden of Lights offers live music every night performed at the Wray Lawn area.
