Tickets are now on sale for Brookgreen Gardens’ annual holiday light display, Nights of a Thousand Candles . It is is the 21st year for the Lowcountry holiday tradition, which features millions of lights draped among Brookgreen Gardens’ large sculptures, mature trees, and blooming flowers. This year, Brookgreen is implementing COVID-19 safety measures for the display and reducing nightly admission by 50 percent to allow for social distancing. The event will be held on select nights between November 27 – December 31, which will allow for the same number of guests to enjoy the event as years past.
Admission to this year’s event includes access to Internationally known artist Bruce Munro’s light art installation, Field of Light. Field of Light features over 12,000 stems of light that slowly change colors, creating a shimmering, mesmerizing effect. Munro initially installed Field of Light as a part of Bruce Munro at Brookgreen: Southern Light over the summer and has donated the extended time to support the Gardens during the pandemic crisis.
