Illuminations 2017 at Botanica

Illuminations Christmas Light Display  at Botanica ~ 701 N. Amidon, Wichita, Ks 

November 24th – December 31st 2017.  Illuminations is open seven days a week (excluding Christmas Eve and Christmas Day)  5:30pm-8:30pm

Tickets prices are: $10 adults, $7 members, $7 children

 With more than one million lights, Botanica invites the community to tour themed gardens, hear live music and visit with Santa.

Illuminations transforms each garden area into a different themed holiday display or uniquely lit botanical setting. Every night, Santa visits and takes pictures with the children, and be sure and visit the Candy Cane Lane!

The Children’s Garden brings smiles to young and old with lit monster trees, fairy lights in the musical maze and fun holiday creatures lighting up every corner. Live carolers and music groups will be on hand to entertain everyone.

Hot chocolate, s’mores, dinner and more are sold throughout the gardens and, on the weekends, an adult hot toddy bar is available as well.

Along with your favorite holiday traditions, don’t forget to check the latest additions at Illuminations!

Watch the Main Meadow show and the beautiful Butterfly Garden is being overtaken with large and small butterflies.

Make sure you checkout the new strobe tree in the Children’s Garden Meadow, and stop by the funky tree to play a game of I-spy!

Last but not least, find Botanica’s Elf on the Shelf, Eddie, as he travels through the gardens to a new location each night, overseeing this unique holiday experience only at Botanica!
