The largest holiday light display in Maine, Gardens Aglow, returns to Coast Maine Botanical Gardens this month. The annual holiday light show featuring more than 360,000 LED lights continues to grow in size year over year, returning Nov. 18, 2016.

Visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings between 4 and 9 p.m. from Nov. 18 to Dec. 31, 2016, to witness the state’s biggest and brightest light display. In addition to the light show, visitors can enjoy holiday gift shopping, S’mores at the fire pit, food trucks, and a special holiday food and beverage option and exhibit at the Kitchen Garden Cafe.

Tickets are $12 per adult, $6 for children ages 3 to 17, and $30 for a family four pack (two adults and two children). Kids under 3 are free. Tickets do sell out and the gardens encourages advanced reservations; do so online and receive $2 off each ticket.

The Coastal Main Botanical Gardens are located in Boothbay, Maine.
