2017 December Nights
& Holiday Lights

Select evenings from
November 24 - December 24
6 to 9 pm

Savannah's jewel of a Christmas returns with over 1,000,000 sparkling lights across the Gardens. This walking tour allows you to spend your leisure visiting various garden areas that are illuminated. Visit with Santa Claus Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and the Coastal Rail Buff's miniature train display. Stop at Mrs. Claus' Kitchen for a hot beverage or baked goodies (purchase these items a la carte to support local non-profit groups running the kitchen). The display is weather-dependent, as rain causes the lights to trip breakers. Therefore, watch the weather report and plan your visit for a nice evening, whether on a weeknight or weekend. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 3-12, and children under 3 are free. Thursday nights are family night with ages 4 and up only $5. The final day of the event is Sunday, December 24, 2017. The Gardens is always closed December 25 through January 1.
