Lewis Ginter's GardenFest of Lights

If you live in the Richmond, VA area, and have never been to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden's "GardenFest of Lights", I highly recommend it. They truly go all out, covering nearly every inch of the extensive gardens with lights, making fanciful flowers, butterflies, spiders, fairies, and even a gigantic peacock that spans the better part of the enormous lawn. In the children's section you'll find a bonfire, refreshments for sale, and a light maze. Inside the conservatory you'll find enormous Christmas trees, orchids, a train set and poinsettias.

We took Liam last night as we do every year, and he had a blast - running all over and looking at all the beautiful lights. It was freezing cold, but well worth it. Even if you don't have children, it makes the perfect date night!
