Embark on a casual self-guided leisurely walking tour through differently themed garden areas. View white reindeer among green-glistening timber bamboo, a snowflake-accented 18-foot holly Christmas tree, an allee of glistening white trees, a rainbow arch-tunnel, the Orchid House roof aglow in red and green light, a Nativity scene with a deep blue background, blue Stars of David, white trumpeting angels in a bed of champagne gold lights, green and white lights around an illuminated fountain in the Rose Garden, glowing willow trees in the Mediterranean Garden, giant red poinsettias, and a candy-inspired children’s experience in our Cottage Garden for just a sampling.

New in 2015: a model train display under the Conference Center’s cathedral ceiling. This choo-choo experience is presented by the Coastal Rail Buffs and is included in your Holiday Lights admission.

CGBG is a tobacco-free University of Georgia property. No smoking, chewing tobacco or e-cigarettes allowed outdoors or in buildings. No pets allowed at December Nights & Holiday Lights.

December Nights & Holiday Lights encompasses at least six acres from the new Visitor’s Center to our Rose Garden, Orchid House, Crapemyrtle Allee, White Garden and beyond! Note: Rain will cause illuminated displays to fail, so there may be cancellations or early closings based on the weather forecast. It’s best to come out during a stretch of fair weather rather than wait until the last few nights (the last two years rain prompted closures on Christmas Eve).

The majority of the Holiday Lights experience is stroller and wheelchair friendly (there are two lawn areas illuminated). For the enjoyment and safety of all around the illuminated displays, please no flash photography.

Spirited music also fills the air, sometimes with live performances by local vocal or instrumental groups in the Great Hall of the Visitors Center. Visit with Santa Claus and take photos from 7 to 8 p on Saturday evenings (November 28, December 5, 12 and 19) in the gazebo of the Cottage Garden. Mrs. Claus will stop by to lead a storytime for kids on Saturday, December 19 and Wednesday, December 23, both at 7 pm at Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen in the Annex.

Stop by Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen for sweet snacks. Local 4-H groups or other non-profits will have goodies and hot drinks for purchase (and all proceeds go to their various programs).
