Saturday & Sunday, December 6 & 7, 2014
5 pm to 9 pm
Kurimoto Japanese Garden
Thousands of candles light the paths of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden in a breathtaking display – a quiet oasis of peace and light. In addition to a stroll through the candle-lit pathways, visitors can sip hot apple cider beside the bonfires, enjoy the seasonal sounds of strolling a capella singers and catch a glimpse of the magical “snow sprites” and glittering ice sculptures. A special Memory Lane will be available for visitors who would like to light a candle in memory of a loved one. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own mug for cider, to help reduce waste.
Handmade natural decorative gifts and treasures will be available at the Crafters Workshop and the Shop-in-the-Garden will also be open.

PARKING AND DIRECTIONS

Parking is limited at the Garden during this popular event. Visitors are encouraged to use a free park-and-ride shuttle service, just 5 kms south of the Garden in the Town of Devon. The shuttles run continuously from 5 to 9 pm.
Park-and-Ride Shuttle Location:
17 Athabasca Avenue in Devon (in the parking lot beside the Devon Public Library)
Thank you to Alldritt Land Corporation for the use of their parking lot!
Directions to Park-and-Ride: From Hwy. 60 in Devon, turn east on Athabasca Avenue (at Extra Foods). Proceed straight through the four-way stop at Superior Street, go half a block, then turn right into the parking lot (across the street from Home Hardware). If you pass the Royal Bank on the right hand side, you've gone too far. There will be signs to guide you.
