Experience Holiday Magic in Alabama
Holiday nights are best spent under dazzling light displays. So, round up your family or bring that special someone, pack the car, and get ready to enter a holiday wonderland that you can experience all season long.
It just would not be the holiday season without Huntsville Botanical Garden’s Galaxy of Lights. Experience 2.5 miles of magnificent light displays weaving together holiday themes, classic characters and scenes from the natural world. These larger-than-life displays include special exhibits such as a holiday village, dinosaurs, wild animals, a magical twinkling icicle forest, garden scenes, animated snowmen and the 12 days of Christmas. And the best part is the garden’s drive-through nights allow you to experience the holiday magic from the comforting warmth of your car.
