On the heels of a record-breaking year for Blossoms of Light, the Events Department is thrilled to announce a brand-new event series kicking off the first weekend of February: Off the Clock!
Join us for the first Friday night of February, March, and April for themed evenings featuring live entertainment, hands-on activities, cash bars and the lush warmth and beauty of our indoor Gardens spaces. With a different theme each month, this series offers something for everyone.

Pick up a parasol or a top hat for this evening filled with the botany, music and etiquette of the Victorian age.
