Brookgreen Gardens’ Nights of a Thousand Candles
December 2-3, 9-10, 15, 16 & 17, 2011 From 3 - 10 p.m.
See Brookgreen Gardens come to life amid the soft glow of more than 5,500 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights. Walk the paths with a warm cup of cider, hear the sounds of hand bells ringing, carolers singing, and celebrate the season with family and friends. More than 30 acres of the gardens are open to the public creating a magical wonderland that will leave you awe struck as you stroll through ten unique garden areas. Candles aboard colorful floating bulbs drift softly in the fountains surrounding sculpture as white lights gently cling to the limbs of mossy oaks, all illuminating the gardens with the magic of the holiday season. Each night an extensive array of musical performances will be held throughout the gardens as local choral ensembles, hand bell choirs and jazz groups play classical and current holiday favorites and a variety of musicians stroll the lighted paths.
Nights of a Thousand Candles is one of South Carolina’s premier holiday festivals not to be missed. Come see why the Southeastern Tourism Society calls Brookgreen Gardens’ Nights of a Thousand Candles one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast.
Brookgreen Gardens is an hours drive from Sunset Beach, NC and Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
