It's the most wonderful time of the year, at Huntsville Botanical Gardens!
Huntsville’s own Galaxy of Lights makes the most of the holiday season by decorating Huntsville Botanical Gardens with thousands of twinkling lights, turning the gardens into a magical display for old and young alike.
The first Galaxy of Lights lit up the sky in 1996 with over 5000 cars passing thru the gates that inaugural year. This year over 25,000 cars are expected as displays have grown to include over 150 lighted scenes and over 750 display scenes. Your heart will overflow with Christmas joy as you gaze upon a delightful winter village, nursery rhyme characters, many traditional holiday greetings and 6 miles of lumanaries that light your way thru the path.
