Galaxy of Lights

Galaxy of Lights

The Huntsville Botanical Garden creates a “holiday light extravaganza” with its Galaxy of Lights every winter. You’ll see Huntsville’s ingenuity on display through animated light displays, from Santa Claus with a rocket to a twinkling icicle forest, traditional holiday scenes or nursery rhyme characters.

This annual event opens with the walking weekend strolls (including some dog friendly nights!) that begin a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Then the Galaxy of Lights opens for cars, which can drive through the path nightly from Thanksgiving into the New Year.

The Galaxy of Lights is constantly touted by travel writers and group tours as a top sight to experience. And we agree!
