Lightscape, Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, IllinoisAlong a mile-long path in the Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois, November 22 through January 5, 2020, the night will come alive with color, imagination, and sound, from a playful “choir” of singing trees to a waterfall of light.

Tickets are available online.
