Illuminations Light Show Returns to Botanica November 18-December 31

Illuminations Experience Returns to Botanica

If light shows are on your list of things to do this winter, don’t miss the brightest place in Kansas! Botanica’s annual holiday light show, Illuminations, will take place nightly from November 18th – December 31st from 5:30pm-9:30pm.

Illuminations has been voted Top 10 Best Light Show in the country. It is the perfect way to create lasting memories and new traditions with friends and loved ones. With over two million lights, they’ve incorporated several all-new magical light displays for this year.

Guests can experience the holiday glow from the new 62-foot MEGA Christmas tree. It is one of the largest branched tree displays in the Midwest region.

This tree will be programmed with festive images and set to holiday music to create a spectacular show!

Tickets must be purchased in advance & will not be sold at the door.


Activities at Illuminations

There will also be an interactive stepping stone light display and lit up orbs that guests can program themselves. All the favorite Illuminations features will still be viewable. This includes displays such as the Funky Tree, the Meadow Show choreographed to music, and so many more.

Before the night is through, don’t forget to take a ride on the Khicha Family Carousel for only $3. Children can also visit Santa any night through December 23rd with their wish list. 

Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase at Botanica’s multiple concession stands. Adult drinks will be offered for purchase by Bar on Demand as well.


What Else Is There to Do at Botanica?

Even after you’ve met Santa and been awed by the light shows, there is still plenty to see at Botanica. The 20 acres of the ever-changing botanical wonderland houses more than 30 themed areas and over 4,000 plant species.

As guests wind through the gardens, they will also discover additional gems. Inspiring sculptures, water features, and even a ride on a restored 1949 carousel makes for an experience to remember. It’s true that Botanica is fun for the whole family. Visit today to plan a fun and family-filled evening at Botanica.
