The event is the largest fundraiser for the gardens and depends on volunteers, sponsors and donations to reduce the cost of offering this holiday tradition in Pinellas County. More than 450 volunteers and generous sponsor donations made last year’s Holiday Lights a success. For information on how to become a foundation member, volunteer or a 2014 sponsor, call the foundation office at (727) 582-2117 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holiday Lights in the Gardens every evening. In addition to laser lights, flora and fauna displays and decorated trees, a seven-foot gingerbread house with more than 600 lights, a 3-foot tall white swan and a five-foot tropical parrot have been added to the tradition array of light-lines paths with nightly free entertainment and visits from Santa Claus.
