Winter Lights tickets on sale
More than 1 million lights will be shining at the North Carolina Arboretum’s annual Winter Lights event, which will take place from Nov. 19 through Jan. 1.
Explore and enjoy vibrant displays, live music and hot cocoa while immersed in the festive lights and sounds of the holidays. Winter lights is the Arboretum’s biggest fundraiser of the year and is a must-see holiday tradition in Western North Carolina. The theme this year is “forest and garden whimsy,” and offers new surprises alongside the popular 50-foot-tall tree of light, the magical maples and story time at Woodland Cove. This year winter lights will return as a walk-through experience, but tickets will be sold per vehicle and tiered pricing ($30-60) will be available on peak and off-peak days. Walk up admission costs an additional $10, so plan in advance. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.ncwinterlights.com of call 828.665.2492.
