The Fort Worth Botanic Garden opened its newest attraction — a bright, joyful display of lights and holiday cheer.

The garden’s “Lightscape” exhibit features more than 1 million lights, Christmas decorations, fields full of light-up bluebonnets and fully decorated Japanese Gardens. 

The exhibit opened Nov. 18 and will be on display through Jan. 8. 

Lightscape is a part of the garden’s larger 20-year plan to welcome visitors with more interactive exhibits and increase diversity in foot traffic, according to previous reporting.

The light spectacle mimics Chicago Botanical Garden’s famous Lightscape display, which debuted in 2019.
