The Huntsville Botanical Garden is hosting a new nighttime event this summer: Night Blooms. This outdoor installation will illuminate the Garden with thousands of lights and botanical lanterns, allowing guests to experience the Garden’s natural surroundings like never before.

The event takes guests on a one-mile walking journey through the Garden after sunset. As guests make their way through the Garden, they will discover vignettes of botanical lanterns integrated into the natural surroundings. Intricately designed and handmade by trained artisans, these lanterns bring plants and wildlife to life. Guests will find poppies, turtles, orchids, spiders, maple trees and more, all brightly colored and glowing from within. Additional lighting effects complete the immersive experience, further transforming the Garden’s landscape with light.

“Night Blooms is a re-imagination of the Garden we know and love,” said Sue Wagner, chief executive officer of the Garden. “The plants and animals we encounter in the Garden every day have been reimagined as illuminated, technicolor and larger than life. The result is an experience that’s almost dreamlike, where guests have the chance to see their environment in a new light, quite literally. We are taking an ordinary walk through the Garden and showing just how extraordinary it can be.”

The lanterns featured in Night Blooms are produced and provided by Hanart Culture. The Garden previously partnered with Hanart Culture to host the Chinese Lantern Festival in 2019. But with a reimagined experience and brand-new lanterns that have never before been seen in the south, Night Blooms is a new and different event.

“Night Blooms is a brand-new experience, unique to Huntsville,” said Wagner. “You can’t find this event anywhere else besides here at the Garden.”
