SAN DIEGO, CA – The internationally acclaimed “Lightscape” ends on Sunday, Jan. 8 at San Diego Botanic Garden. Lightscape has run in the world’s biggest cities over the last ten years with sold-out runs in London, Chicago, Melbourne and New York.
2022 marked the first year with Lightscape in San Diego. The show features more than
one million holiday lights, tunnels, fire, sculptures and artistic installations throughout a one mile winding walking trail.
San Diego Botanic Garden is producing Lightscape in association with Sony Music, which amazes millions of people year after year with similar shows in multiple locations across the world, including the U.K. and Australia. Additionally, Lightscape is creatively produced by Culture Creative and promoted in partnership with WAD Entertainment.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Multiple parking lots and entrances are activated for Lightscape, therefore groups arriving in separate cars are strongly advised to attend the event together in order to park in the same lot and begin at the same trail entrance.
The outdoor event is rain or shine so be sure to pack an umbrella and poncho just in case the weather is a little pet. During my visit, we had some light rain and the event was still fully enjoyable.
San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) is a 37-acre urban oasis located in Encinitas, California, just north of San Diego at 300 Quail Gardens Drive. The Garden’s four miles of trails and 8,000 square foot glass conservatory display more than 5,300 plant species and varieties.
SDBG features the largest public bamboo collection in North America with gardens representing different regions and flora of the world; as well as demonstration gardens showcasing fruits and vegetables, water-smart ornamentals, and native plants.
SDBG is home to three children’s gardens, including the largest kids’ garden on the west coast.
