  • Our favorite is the Icicle Forest! (I believe that’s what its called) It’s so pretty!!! The “snow ” is fun too!

  • We have never been but I would be taking my husband and two year old!!!

  • I like the tin soldier display and the dinosaur. My daughter loves the icicles where it snows on walking nights.

  • It doesn’t snow much here so my favorite has always been the lights that look like snow. My son, Brayden, is 6 and he loves the dinosaurs and storybook characters.

  • My son loved the dinosaurs the most last year. He kept screaming diplodocus ahhhh!

  • I would take my 87 year old mother. I can’t really afford the car pass. We are not doing Christmas gifts this year, so this would be a nice way to celebrate the season. When I have gone in past years, I have enjoyed the snowman fighting with snow balls, as well as many other displays. Hard to pick a favorite.

  • We try to go on walking nights (which didn’t happen this year) My favorite is the area where all the white lights are dangling done like a curtain or wall if lights. My kiddos love the castle and the dino

  • We have only been once before, but I remember the tunnel of lights was very cool. I’d bring my husband and 4 kids. Thank you!

  • I have never been but would like to go with my 5 year old daughter. $25 a little too expensive for a single mom. 🙂

    • Congrats Erica – you’re one of our winners! Please check your email to claim your pass.

  • My kids love picking out the light displays from “The 12 Days of Christmas” at the beginning of the trail. We always sing “5 golden rings” extra loud!!

  • We have never been able to go due to finances. I am sure my family especially the 6 year old would love to see the lights so we could have the experience and memory as a family.

    • Congrats Zelika – you are one of our winners! Please check your email to claim your pass.

      • Thank you so much Stephanie. They will be so excited to hear the news tomorrow!!! Season’s Greetings everyone

  • I have personally never been before, but my mother really talks it up as being a spectacular sight to see. I would just like to say that if i were to able to take her to this event free of charge it would be her entire Christmas, my mother is developmentally disabled and survives on an income of only disability, so you see she rarely can be
    afforded an opportunity such as this, something she loves so dear, but is always out
    of reach.

  • I’ve never been! I would love to take a friend who just recently went through a bad break-up. I’m trying to convince them there’s still a little magic left in this world if you just know where to look!

  • I have been (driving and walking through). I’m gonna say the icicle tunnel. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  • We’ve never been before but I would bring my husband, six-year-old son, two-year-old daughter, mother-in-law, and father-in-law!

  • I have never been to the Galaxy of Lights, but would love to go! My 1 year old is really into light displays, so this would be a great first for both of us.

  • We have never been!! 🙁 If I won I would take my daughter, my mother & my daughters best friend & her mom & also a friend of mine & her 2 kids! We would be soooo excited to see this!! I’ve heard it is awesome!!!
    Merry Christmas!!

    • Congrats Dana – you are one of our winners! Please heck your email to claim your pass.

  • I’ve haven’t been yet. I would take my husband, son, daughter, & grandchild.

  • I love the fact that the Botanical Gardens always includes space inspired light displays which capture Huntsville’s legacy in our nation’s space history!

  • My favorite is either the Icicle Forest or Santa in the Helicopter. I would take my 4 year old granddaughter. I’m sure she would recognize and say all the Nursery Rhymes.

  • I would love to take my husband and 2 sons! We never been before due to being new in the area but heard it’s simply stunning

  • To be honest my favorite is all of them! Sooo very beautiful.. I have only been once and would love to take my kiddos this year…
