One of the main holiday season events in St. Louis will be back in just over a week. The Glow Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard) Our Eyeballs are set to bless starting November 13th.
More than a million lights will dazzle as you walk in the park. The Botanic Garden’s website also promises “fun new experiences” along with photo opportunities and festive drinks.
Photo opportunities include standing behind holiday tires or an inflatable snow globe in photo areas. Of course, photos are encouraged everywhere in the park. Santa Claus will also appear several times in the park on his sleigh at Linnaean Plaza from 5 to 9 p.m. on certain days in November and December.
Garden Glow requires masks for those over five years old when entering and exiting, as well as indoors. It is recommended to use the masks outside.
Tickets are available for purchase now. Non-members over the age of thirteen pay $18 off-peak and $20 during peak times, while child tickets cost $10. Member tickets start at $14 and may cost up to $16; Member child rates under 13 start at $3 and go up to $8. The Garden Glow opens at 5 PM every night and allows its last guests to start at 8:30 PM
However, on some Wednesday nights, kids get $3 while adults get $18 for “family nights.” The dates for family nights are November 17 and 24; 1 and 8 December.
