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 AT THE GARDEN IS LIMITED. Please take the free park-and-ride shuttle from Devon (map and directions below. Extra busses have been added for Sunday night.
