Lights in Bloom is returning to Selby Gardens' Downtown Sarasota campus beginning Saturday, Dec. 10. More than 2 million lights enhance the gardens' natural beauty and are sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit. Guests can also enjoy food and beverages provided by a variety of vendors while strolling the illuminated grounds.

Last year Selby Gardens hosted more than 29,000 guests during Lights in Bloom. They enjoyed displays like lighted flamingos, tropical butterflies and the ever-popular Caterpillar Tunnel and Wishing Tree, all of which have made a return this year, thanks to Lights in Bloom designers Affairs in the Air.

Lights in Bloom will run from December 10-23, December 26-30 and January 1 and 3-5.

Guests are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance via Selby's ticketing portal. This year parking is limited due to on-site construction, but pre-paid valet vouchers can also be purchased in advance, separate from park admission.

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens Downtown Sarasota campus is located at 1534 Mound St. For more information, visit its website. For advance ticket and parking voucher purchase, visit the ticketing portal.
