Upon entering, guests can have their photo taken in front of a grand 30-foot-tall Christmas tree. Visitors can also explore a forest of fog and light created to mirror the aurora borealis. There will be interactive light and sound elements, like holiday bells that chime once you step on them. Dazzling Nights also features a 65-foot tunnel of lights, fake snow and plenty of festive music.
With social distancing in mind, this event is completely outdoors. Guests must also wear masks at all times.
“Our holiday traditions may look a little different this year because of COVID, and that gives us an opportunity to find new ways to discover joy, feel whole and find inspiration this season,” said Sharon Line Clary, vice president of marketing at AdventHealth. “We encourage our neighbors to visit Dazzling Nights, take in the fresh Florida air and celebrate the holidays at the beautiful Leu Gardens with your loved ones.”
“When we began dreaming about a holiday experience, we knew it had to be more than just lights on trees,” said Cole NeSmith, Creative City project executive director. “We’re always asking how we can create unique, creative experiences that will inspire our guests. Some of the installations are breathtakingly epic, and others are quite intimate. We think adults and kids, alike, are going to want to make this an annual tradition.”
Dazzling Nights will take place Dec. 1, 2020 – Jan. 3, 2021. Guests can purchase tickets for $22 per person. On-site parking is available for a small fee, and complimentary parking is also available from Blue Jacket Park along with shuttle transportation.
