Beginning November 25 Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens will transform into a winter wonderland of glittering displays for the 7th Annual Festival of Lights. Create a holiday tradition and take a stroll along the Gardens’ twinkling pathways each Friday through Sunday, November 25 through December 18 from 5:00 to 7:30pm. Have your face painted in a festive fashion. Santa will be available for photos on select nights! Then warm up in the beautifully decorated tent complete with live music, sweet treats, and local craft brews and wine. Tickets are $10 each, children age 16 and under attend for free. Tickets are available at the Gardens’ gift shop, Harvest Market in Fort Bragg, Out of This World in Mendocino, or online at www.gardenbythesea.org.
