Need to know where to get your holiday light fix in Atlanta and the surrounding area? Here’s a good list to get you started.

  • Garden Lights Holiday Nights at Atlanta Botanical Garden
    This event celebrates its 8th season with a new twist on last year’s three-dimensional light curtain, new displays and a lounge in the Skyline Garden. The show features several of the giant topiary-like sculptures from this past summer’s mosaiculture exhibition, "Imaginary Worlds: Once Upon a Time."  More highlights include Nature's Wonders, with new music, choreography and sound effects in which the more than 70,000 color-changing LED bulbs create images of Northern Lights, a storm at sea and a gentle snowfall, among others. For the first time, the show extends to the new Skyline Garden, where the Flower Walk is immersed in a new all-white light tunnel while a lighted sculpture anchors the fiddlehead display in the Aquatic Plant Pond. Back by popular demand are those dancing Orchestral Orbs on the Great Lawn, towering cone trees, giant candles, the serene Ice Goddess, holiday model trains and s’more-roasting fire pits. Through Jan. 6, 2019
