New this holiday season is Mounts Botanical's "Garden of Lights", running now through December 30th (closed Dec. 24 and Dec. 25).

Thousands of lights illuminating foliage around the garden.  The presension was installed by the same company that produces Admirals Cove, and Las Olas's displays.  

This is the first time the garden history it has been open at night.  Since the garden in the flight path of Palm Beach International Airport organizers had to work with them and PBSO to make sure the lights weren't distracting to pilots.

"It really brings botanical wonders to light.  And we specifically chosen architecturally interesting trees," says Rochelle Wolberg, Curator Director Mounts Botanical Garden.

The garden is open nightly at 5:30 and costs $10 for adults and $5 for children ages five to 12 and $8 for members.
