The enormously popular Garden dLights festival features over million lights which transform the Bellevue Botanical Garden into a blossoming winter wonderland. Over 150,000 people enjoy this dazzling display each December inspired by plants found in Northwest gardens and gardens around the world, hundreds of volunteers have been busy making new creations. In 2011 Snap dDragon joined the list of over 30 critters including Charlotte in her web and Willie the Slug. You wont want to miss the Aquarium in Lights in the Visitor Center with the pulsing jellyfish and our own octopus, or the gorgeous pond and border display on the main lawn. Our extended route through the garden is enhanced with a flowing river in lights and four waterfalls. This year will be an exciting adventure for all ages.
