Longwood Gardens Nightscape + Beer Garden


Last Wednesday night, my husband and I got to experience Nightscape — a light and sound experience that made its debut along with the new Beer Garden at Longwood Gardens.

With the exception of Christmastime, when the trees throughout the Gardens are decorated with thousands of tiny twinkle lights, the Gardens have always been quiet after dark. With Nightscape, guests can enjoy wandering the Gardens after dark because the trees and flowers are transformed by light and sound. It’s quite enchanting. They use projectors to cast lights on the trees and flowers, and the music is coordinated with the movement of the lights… or visa versa. I tried to capture a bit of it on Periscope, but my camera phone was having a hard time picking it all up. To really get the idea, watch this 35-second trailer they created. read more >>
