A first for Miami
The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami will become a wonderous illuminated night garden for the holiday season. From November 23 - January 6 you can experience fabulous lighting displays, special effects, motion-sensing technology, illuminated mazes, state-of-the-art outdoor holograms, sculptures and more surprises.
The NightGarden is a blend of entertainment art, design, and photo opportunities. Plus food and drink offerings by some of Miami's top-rated eateries. The full lineup of partners will be announced on Nov. 1.
"The NightGarden is an experience unlike any other – a perfect synergy of out-of-this-world fantasy and stunning sensations inspired by real life phenomenon," said Nannette Zapata, Chief Operating Officer at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. "We can't wait to share the magic with visitors, our members, the community and beyond."
The unique experience will occupy 23 acres, featuring a collection of highly-interactive landscapes with spectacular 360-degree lighting, illusions and special effects. Kids will enjoy the illuminated mazes, talking trees, growing dandelion field, scavenger hunts, and other supernatural surprises.
"The mystical NightGarden will help visitors escape to the gorgeous setting of the world-famous Fairchild Garden. This experience is a chance for the community to suspend reality for a few hours, have fun and explore the world in a whole new light," added Max Painter, Creative Producer of The NightGarden.
"Families and friends are constantly craving new ways to experience life together, let loose and simply disconnect from their screens, especially during this time of year," said Mark Manuel, CEO of Kilburn Media, the production company. "With The NightGarden, we aim to create an event where our guests can experience the unbelievable."
