by: Loren Mayo Black Tie Editor

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ annual “Lights in Bloom: A Tropical Holiday Celebration,” is back for the holidays.

Thousands of twinkling lights, including light sculptures of butterflies, dragonflies, orchids and tropical birds, illuminate the Gardens. A signature 20-foot-tall bromeliad tree is displayed in front of the mansion, and guests will be able to stroll nightly through the Tropical Conservatory nightly. Children may also visit with Santa Claus every night prior to Christmas.

Selby Lights in Bloom will be open from 6 to 9 p.m., Dec. 22, 23, 26 and 27. Admission is $12 for adults and $10 for members. Children age 12 and under enter free. The Gardens is located at 900 S. Palm Ave. For more information, call 366-5731.
