North Carolina Arboretum Description: Our guests have been enjoying the Winter Lights at the Arboretum. Winter Lights is a three-acre nightly walking tour of The North Carolina Arboretum’s nationally-known gardens in Asheville, including its Quilt Garden and Bonsai Exhibition Garden. Celebrate the holidays and discover the natural beauty of western North Carolina through lighted garden exhibits and landscapes. Produced in collaboration with former designer and manager of holiday decorations, special projects and events for Walt Disney World®, Jerry Stripling, the Arboretum’s Winter Lights exhibit is designed with an artistic aesthetic and is composed entirely of energy-efficient LED (light-emitting diode) lights, which use 80% less energy than conventional lights.  WHAT’S NEW? The 2015/2016 Winter Lights exhibit will also include animated displays that are programmed to illuminate to the sounds of musical holiday favorites. In addition, we will have several new displays and family-friendly activities that will be placed throughout the gardens.   Open Nightly: 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. November 20, 2015 – January 2, 2016 TICKET PRICES Individual (12 years or older) $18 Individual – Arboretum Member (12 years or older)* $16 Children (ages 5 to 11) $16 Children – Arboretum Member (ages 5 to 11)* $14 Children age 4 & under FREE Group Ticket Purchase (20 or more tickets for same event day) $15 Special: Friends & Family Night Every Tuesday!     […]
